Chapter 1212 – Granite Hills High School
Adviser Stacy Vehrs
Chloe Ross is a student at Granite Hills High School in Porterville and is a CSF officer. Her CSF activities include the canned food drive and “Adopt a Family” Christmas project. CSF Advisor, Stacy Vehrs, notes Chloe was determined to continue the food drive this year even though the campus was closed. Thus, she placed boxes out for students when they came to campus for their pictures. Chloe also participated in the marching band, swim and tennis teams. Her work with the Rotary Interact Club involved working on the Special Needs Prom and Horseshoe decorating.
According to Denise Marchant (Z Club Committee Chairman), Chloe is “deeply committed and determined in all she does, and most importantly, always does it with a smile and a kind heart.” With the Z-Club, she has worked on the Porterville Women’s Shelter Valentine and Halloween Parties, the Ronald McDonald House Donation Drive, multiple Sock Drives, the City of Porterville Spring Clean-up and the Zonta Art & Wine Showcase.
Chloe writes “I found myself drawn to work with those in need. Seeing such devastation in my community was and is what continues to be the foundation of my passion to help others.” Thus, as Founder and President of Heartwarmers, Chloe has made over 150 knot blankets for Project Homeless Connect, Central Valley Honor Flight, Visalia Child Welfare Services, and Central California Family Crisis Center.
Chloe intends to continue her education at Oregon State University to study political science.
