Student of the Week: May 20, 2021

Congratulations to SMS Alpine's Chloe Lathrop '21 for being recognized as Student of the Week! 
When Athletic Trainer Kate Boobar invited faculty and staff members to share their thoughts on our most recent Student of the Week, she noted a commonality. According to her coaches and teachers, SMS Alpine’s Chloe Lathrop ’21 is an exceptionally kind, hardworking, and dedicated young woman. 

“This young lady is truly remarkable,” said Boobar, who nominated Chloe as Student of the Week. “Her career at SMS started around the age of 5 or 6 years old, and I am sure she could win the most hours spent as a ball girl- before she even became a student.”

“Chloe is one of the hardest workers on and off the hill,” said Head FIS Women’s Coach Topher Harlow. “Her intensity is unmatched.  She also manages to get more runs than anyone in the program by using her secret teleportation device to bypass the lift- it's amazing.”

Chloe has a positive attitude, treating everyone with respect, and is a conscientious learner who stands strong for what she believes in. She is known around campus for her excellent sportsmanship and willingness to offer a helping hand, like assisting her classmates set up the Spring Formal last weekend. In addition, she is exceptional at any sport she tries. 

“It's one thing to be interested in multiple sports, but Chloe is fantastic at all of them- skiing, tennis, soccer, swimming, karate, and probably countless others!” added Melissa Oliva. 

Chloe is not the first Lathrop to attend Stratton Mountain School either.  She was proceeded by her five siblings, Hunter Lathrop’12, Brittany Lathrop’13, Lara Lathrop, and Mikayla Lathrop ’17. 

“As the youngest of five, Chloe has had a sibling attending SMS since 2008,” continued Boobar. “Every single one of them would have been blessed with the same comments I just shared with you. They are a tribe of truly wonderful people.”

Family means the world to this young lady, and we are beyond grateful to have her as part of our SMS family. 

Congratulations, Chloe!
