Arkansas City High School senior Jacey Arnett is the September Soroptimist Girl of the Month.

The Soroptimist Girl of the month for September is Jacey Arnett, daughter of Roderic and Jody Arnett, of Arkansas City.

Jacey was recently recognized at the bimonthly meeting of Soroptimist of Arkansas City. Jacey is an outstanding student, a member of the National Honor Society and is also active in the ACHS band, symphonic choir, Ark High Singers, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the ACHS girls tennis team.

The Arkansas City branch of Soroptimist International of America is awarding nine seniors with the honor of Soroptimist Girl of the Month for the 2019-20 school year. The Soroptimist Girl Award is unique to the Arkansas City Soroptimist organization and was started many years ago in honor of high school senior girls.

The winners are chosen based on their high ideals, endeavors in obtaining their goals, their achievements in academics and their participation in school, church and community. Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional women who provide volunteer service to their communities.

The name Soroptimist means “best for women” and that is what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best working to help other women be their best.
