Rotary Honors Three as Students of the Month for October

In an online meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on October 20th 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 School
Pastor Paul Stoot introduced Arshpreet Kaur and her counselor Darcie Cooper.
Arshpreet is a natural leader, very optimistic and striving to improve. She stays busy with AP (advanced placement) classes and is captain of the Girls’ Wrestling Team, a Link Crew Leader, NHS officer and a member of the Everett Youth Advisory Board.
Everett High School
Dr. Tom Koenig introduced Amina Hussein, her counselor Dayna Weir and her Avid teacher Amy Stifter.
Amina is pro-active, passionate, and dedicated. She was born in a Kenyan refugee camp and survived Malaria before moving to the US. Whether helping her AVID peers during tutorials, advocating for equity in education in Olympia, or fighting for social justice at Everett High, Amina cares deeply for her peers and the community.
Sequoia High School
Laura Zorick introduced Leyla Ozturk, Lynnann Ozturk, her mother, and her counselor Trisha Schultz.
Leyla is a highly motivated student who pushes herself in all her classes, but especially AP.  She's enrolled in the dental program at Sno-Isle TECH and will follow her dream of being a dental assistant after she graduates in June. In her spare time, she enjoys being outside with her dog.
In 2020 the Rotary Club of Everett provided $214,000 in scholarships to students from the Everett area. The club also supports college-bound students in the Everett School District’s AVID program. Club members represent a broad spectrum of business, governmental, charitable and public service occupations and support service projects in the Everett community and around the world. The club meets in an online Zoom session at 12:00 noon every Tuesday.
