Rotary Honors Three as February Students of the Month

The Rotary Club of Everett on February 14, 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.
Student of the Month from Sequoia High is Eve Quintana, a motivated, hardworking, polite and determined student who hopes to graduate early. She plans to attend Florida State University and study criminal justice with dreams of working for the FBI. For over two years she's been involved in Teen Storyteller Projects, which assists students in creating short films. A teacher said “I have known Eve since her freshmen year and she has always been focused, determined and dedicated to be successful. She is friendly, funny and vibrant! She excels in all she does because she sets goals and meets them.”
Everett High Student of the Month is Blake Needham. Blake has participated in Everett Community College’s Ocean Research College Academy and excelled in college level courses. This year he wanted ALL students to see themselves as part of Everett High. So he and his classmate spent all year capturing video and photos of ALL students at a variety of events at EHS and turning them into phenomenal videos that have been shared with the entire school and on a YouTube channel for Everett High. He constantly pushes himself to expand, come at it from a different angle, or try something new.
Cascade Student of the Month is Kadyn Boyle. Her English teacher said “Kadyn has an able mind and has always been a hard worker and a quick study. Her hope to excel in one area doesn’t diminish her drive to excel in others.” Another said “Kadyn is extremely kind and courteous to her teachers and her peers. She has a great work ethic and desire to learn as much as possible. She helps her fellow students if they are confused on a topic. She is a member of the National Honors Society, earning a 3.95 GPA throughout high school while taking a rigorous course load.”
