Senior Spotlight - Rhea Mitr
Class of 2020
Attending Stanford university
Rhea’s QLS journey began in elementary school. During her time at QLS, she earned numerous accolades at the international, national, and state level. Among them include representing Team USA at the 2018 International Geography Bee World Championships, earning a National Merit Scholarship as one of the Finalists in the competition, and advancing to the Top 15 Finalist round in the worldwide Breakthrough Junior Challenge. She served as 9th and 10th grade Class President in Student Council, and founded the school’s Environmental Club, in which she has spearheaded various projects as the club’s President.
Best QLS Memory
The Environmental Club’s inaugural 2019 “Earth Day Celebration” was a truly unforgettable experience because it was a culmination of my club’s efforts over the last few years. It was so gratifying to witness our entire school community come together for the common goal of protecting our planet. The event’s lively performances, interactive club-booths, delicious food trucks, and compelling speeches will forever be etched into my memory of my time at QLS.
What I'll Miss Most About QLS
In addition to my daily drives to school with my little sister Romal, I will greatly miss the warmth of the QLS family, amazing faculty, and friends who have constantly supported me throughout the last 8 years.
“Rhea is a font of beautiful legacies. In our Spanish 4 class, when we were learning and studying about the environment, Rhea, Juliana, and Aanchal decided to create the Environmental Club. Today our school has a beautiful rain garden, one of the most wonderful projects made by our students, parents and staff. This rain garden is a legacy of love, care and pride. Muchas gracias Rhea y estudiantes por esta bella herencia de amor!”
