St. Anthony Park senior Brooke Rogers received the St. Paul Area Athena Award for outstanding achievement in athletics. Rogers, a senior at St. Paul Central High School, was one of 42 women athletes from St. Paul area high schools recognized at an awards ceremony and luncheon in April.
The daughter of Belinda and Charles Rogers, Brooke played soccer, ran cross country, and was a member of the Nordic ski team and track team at Central. She served as captain of both the soccer team and track team this year. Outside of her athletic activities, Brooke is a member of the senior class council, plays trumpet in the school’s symphonic band and heads the school’s National Honor Society’s Multicultural Committee.
Rogers is in the top 5 percent of her senior class at Central and plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the fall. She’s a full-International Baccalaureate diploma student, but the achievement she’s most of proud of is this: She’s had perfect attendance in school since she began as a kindergartner at St. Anthony Park Elementary School.
