When a contingent of Ft. Riley soldiers visited Centre on Thursday, their leader, Captain David Ferreira, presented an Outstanding Leadership award to senior Ally Basore as part of the unit’s ongoing partnership with the district.
Her name is the first to appear on a wall plaque that will record future award winners.
Basore has a long resume of accomplishments, including involvement in organizations and athletics, class officer, and a two-year service as state Future Business Leaders of America parliamentarian. She has maintained a 4.0 grade-point average throughout high school and is a member of the National Honor Society.
Basore plans to attend a four-year university and major in engineering.
