When Ed Romance got his plans for a Sports Hall of Fame going, he insisted on one additional award each year- the honoring of the Outstanding High School Scholar Athlete. He recognized the importance of encouraging excellence not only in sports, but academics as well. We have always had outstanding award winners, but Lori Rothermel’s accomplishments rank with the best.
Lori is #1 in her class with an average of 97.52. He SAT scores are 1259. She is president of the National Honor Society. He has won District Championships in booth informative and persuasive speaking. She’s been a Summer scholar at both Lebanon Valley College and Washington and lee University.
She was Rotary’s Exchange Student to Korea in 1985-86, and a winner of Lebanon Valley College’s Presidential Leadership Scholarship.
Athletically, she’s just as big a winner. She’s lettered in four sports: Cross country, track, swimming and basketball. She captained last Fall’s Girl’s District Courses year’s Lady Tornado Track Team. Lori has narrowed her choice of colleges to four; Princeton, Bucknell, Penn and Lebanon Valley.
Lori is the daughter of Linda and Ray Rothermel of Mount Carmel. This delightful, pretty teenager will continue to succeed wherever she decided to go- accomplishment is part of her makeup.
