The Snohomish Tillicum Kiwanis presented its annual Dux Awards to eighth-graders Orion Presler (Valley View Middle School) and Timothy Matson (Centennial Middle School).
Dux is a Latin word meaning leader and is used in some countries to signify the top student in a graduating class. The title was suggested by Kiwanis treasurer John Bruce, who won the award when he finished primary school in Scotland. The students were selected by their teachers and principals for improvement, their acceptance of a leadership role and their actions in helping fellow students.
