Goodrich is a co-author of House Resolution 12, which honors the 2021 NBA Rising Star All-Stars. Rising Stars are high school seniors who demonstrate leadership in their schools and communities and receive a $2,100 scholarship. Hunter was one of 21 Indiana students selected for the scholarship.

According to Goodrich, Hunter has been an active Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville member since middle school, where he has led neighborhood clean-up and food-drive projects. At school, Hunter serves as secretary of the Torch Club and president of the Keystone Club, which are organizations focused on fine-tuning students’ leadership skills. Members in those clubs who hold an office must be voted in by their peers and be in good academic standing.

“Chayse clearly has a passion to serve others and is a young leader in our community, and he embodies the spirit of this scholarship,” Goodrich stated. “These characteristics stay with a person, and I have no doubt that he will continue to be a role model to others for years to come.”

Hunter plans to study welding and engineering after graduation. For more about the Indianapolis NBA Rising Star All-Star program, visit
