The winners are: JD Axtman from Sultan Elementary School; Jeff Gushwa from Sultan Middle School; Micki Miller from Sultan High School; and Phyllis Tubbs from Gold Bar Elementary School.

Two Mukilteo teachers recognized

Barten was named Art Educator of the Year, the organization’s highest honor, and Jordan was recipient of the WAEA Middle Level Art Educator of the Year honor.

The two received recognition during the WAEA annual convention in Des Moines.

Local colleges named military-friendly

Everett, Edmonds and Cascadia community colleges, as well as Trinity Lutheran College in Everett, were recently named to the 2013 Military Friendly Schools by G.I. Jobs magazine.

In all, 28 of the state’s 34 community and technical colleges made the list.
