Lifelong Miami Lakes resident Chloe Schwinghammer has been honored by her school, MAST Academy, as its Silver Knight nominee for Drama.

Her expertise and community commitment has long been in drama. At MAST, she has been the lead actress in multiple musicals.

She became MAST’s first-ever student director.

Her Silver Knight nomination was a result of years of committed service. She first attended the Main Street Players acting camp when she was in middle school.

Schwinghammer has hundreds of volunteer hours working on various school and community projects including as a summer counselor at Shake-A-Leg and her many years as an active Girl Scout.

As a Scout, she earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for creating the Miami Lakes Fit Fair to help families learn about community activities in which their children can participate to help them stay in shape.
