Jackson pair first in tech competition
Jackson High School sophomores Sri and Sai Nimmagadda came home from Nashville, Tenn., in June after winning first place at the National Technology Student Association Conference.
The brothers traveled to the competition as members of the Jackson High National Technology Student Association team with adviser Rick Wigre. The conference included more than 4,800 students from the United States, Germany and Turkey.
Middle and high school students vied for honors in more than 60 competitive events during the conference. The events were based on principles and concepts students learned during the school year in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Debating Technological Issues was the winning high school event project for Sri and Sai. The team took pro and con sides of biotechnology.
K of C students of month honored
The Knights of Columbus recognized March, April and May Students of the Month at Immaculate Conception Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
Christina Ozmun was the March student of the month. She is a hardworking student who maintains a 3.9 grade point average. Jon Sisneros, the April student of the month, is an altar server who also volunteers at the parish food bank. Tara Darrow, who was the student of the month in May, recently completed her first year at the school. She serves as a positive role model for her peers and accepts personal responsibility for both her learning and behavior.
Students receive scholarships
The Soroptimist International of Marysville recently held its annual Awards and Scholarship Breakfast where the club gave $14,500 in scholarships and awards.
The recipients were Celeste Bryant, Courtney Coombs, Yvonne Fong, Katherine LaRosa, You-Min Lee, Stacey Reyes, Melanie Shelton, Haley Spooner and Louie Tan-Vital.
Monroe student in aerospace program
Aaron Jost, a student at Monroe High School, has been selected to attend the Washington Aerospace Scholars Summer Residency Program at Seattle's Museum of Flight.
Jost is one of 160 talented juniors from across the state whose academic performance on the WAS Phase One curriculum qualified them for the Phase Two Summer Residency.
He applied for the program and competed with 296 others for the residency by completing eight online lessons. Assignments included technical essays, graphics and math problems related to space or physics.
The Summer Residency is a six-day program in which four teams of scholars work to plan a human mission to Mars. They will be supported by professional engineers and scientists, university students and certificated educators.
