Boothe was selected as a winner from more than 1.5 millions students who entered the 2021 competition.

In May, Boothe was one of two seniors at Maumelle recognized by U.S. Rep. French Hill (R-2nd) for education excellence.

Boothe graduated with a 4.3 grade point average and attended Arkansas Governor’s School, played in the band, as well as on the tennis and golf teams for the Hornets, among other extracurriculars.

“I am so proud of Clayton and have really loved working with him and his family,” Jennifer Emfinger and school counselor said in a release. “He is a great kid and will continue to make Maumelle proud.”
