Clara Sutherland is today’s Student of the Day. Clara is a Junior and a top rower for RowAmerica Rye. She is currently trying to get recruited for crew and is looking for a North Eastern University to row at for the next 4 years. She explains how the process of recruitment for crew is quite time consuming because it requires a large amount of emails, phone calls, and meetings between coaches and universities. She has now been to Rowing Youth Nationals twice, where she has had to travel to Florida and California during school finals.

Not only is she committed to her rowing life, she also manages to balance that with a heavy school schedule and hanging out with her friends. Clara takes all honor classes as well as AP Lang, AP US History and AP Chemistry. She is currently hoping to compete at the Head of the Charles, which is a very large and famous regatta in Boston during October.

Junior, Emma Alexa, said, ‘Clara is very hardworking and a great friend!’ Pippa Emms said, ‘She’s a great girl – fun to be around and a stellar student,’ and Molly McGowen said, ‘A studious girl who certainly has a fun side’.
