Rotary Honors Three as Students of the Month for November

In a hybrid online/in-person meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on November 16, 2021 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.
Sequoia High Student of the Month is Liberty Scott, a focused, determined and creative student who takes great pride in her work. Her greatest academic strength is how much time she puts into her work to not only learn it but understand it. Her advisor said she is one of the nicest, hardworking students who works quietly to get her work done. Liberty plans to graduate early and continue her education at EvCC or Western Washington University to earn a degree in early education.
Everett High’s Student of the Month is Ailin Palma, a resilient and dedicated student. She has maintained a 3.853 GPA while taking challenging advanced placement classes, working 20-30 hours per week to help support her family, being involved in extracurricular activities like Cheer and Latinos Unidos, and volunteering at her local church. She hopes to go to university next year, and be the first generation Mexican American to graduate in her family.
Student of the Month from Cascade High is Mariana Oliva-Jauregui. Mariana is captain of the swim and track team, a member of NHS, Latino Club, and HOSA, and senior class vice president. As a student and a dance instructor in Grupo Folklorico Nuestras Raices, she showcases her culture through dance. She volunteers at the Lynnwood food bank, maintains a 4.0 GPA and hopes to study biological life sciences. As Miss Teen Washington Latina 2021, Mariana has been a strong activist for racial justice.
