Rotary Honors Three as April Students of the Month

The Rotary Club of Everett on April 18, 2023 honored three local high school students as Rotary Students of the Month.
Each month during the school year the club recognizes outstanding high school students in the city of Everett for their accomplishments and their promise.
Cascade High Student of the Month is Kenzie Thomas.
Kenzie has always been a great example of how to be both accountable in school and sports: stellar grades and a great team player. She always comes to practice with a great attitude and eagerness to improve. From Rhonda Covert, athletics secretary: “Kenzie is an honest young lady with great integrity, compassion and perseverance. Kenzie works hard and never gives up, even when faced with adversity. She has a generous heart, is very helpful and courteous and respected among her peers. I am excited to see where she goes in this world.” 
Student of the Month from Sequoia High is Rae Thomas.
Rae is a caring student who takes great pride in her schoolwork and attendance. She plans to attend Seattle Central and study in the surgical technology program. After becoming a certified surgical technologist, she plans to transfer to a university for a bachelor's degree in neuropsychology. Her dream is to become a surgical first assistant or surgical physician assistant. A teacher said “Rae is a kind, thoughtful, and talented student. She is creative and a hard worker. She brightens every room that she’s in!  We’re so proud of her!”
Everett High Student of the Month is Kadalyna Franck-Tolentino.
In addition to participating in both basketball and tennis, Kadalyna has been a member of EHS’s DECA and is this year’s Interact Club President, where she helps organize the club’s community outreach and on-campus service. In addition to her extracurricular activities and maintaining a 3.5 GPA, Kadalyna has volunteered with the Providence General Children’s Association. She coordinated a pet food drive for Everett Animal Shelter and delivered two boxes full of supplies and food. She hopes to become a veterinarian.
