Women’s Hall of Fame

Jacqueline Cooke

JACQUELINE COOKE, from the day she entered Burlingame High School, has been involved in student government, athletics, and music. Her nominator writes that despite some major personal and family obstacles, she has been developed outstanding leadership skills and maintained a consistent honor roll academic standing. She is one of two seniors representing Burlingame High in a community coalition known as “Burlingame Together,” an intergenerational project linking students with senior citizen partners. Ms. Cooke is also a leader in “Freshman Gathering,” a program designed to help ninth graders bridge the transition from middle to high school. She is presently student body president and was recently voted the Senior Who Contributed the Most. Her volunteer activities, too numerous to list here, range from fund raising for AIDS research to collecting teddy bears to bring joy to a young child.
