Theodosopoulos participates in numerous activities at Brookings High School including the National Honor Society, Student Council, Family Career and Community Leaders of America, Students Against Destructive Decisions and Health Occupation Students of America. She also sang in All State Chorus and the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church choir and volunteered for Building Friend Forever-Youth Mentoring, the Brookings Marathon, and the Superhero 5K Fun-Run Walk.

Brookings Health System’s Educational Scholarship provides financial assistance to a senior who best meets the criteria of the program. Brookings Health System selects the recipient based on a number of criteria including the location of their chosen school, the career area the student is interested in pursuing, the student’s extracurricular activities both in school and in the community, and their outside employment. Recipients are also assessed based on their GPA and personal essay.

The scholarship is another way Brookings Health System invests in building tomorrow’s workforce, which is part of the organization’s vision. As the fifth largest employer in Brookings, Brookings Health System provides employees a variety of benefits, including paid time off, retirement plans, health insurance and wellness reimbursement.
