Arlington Rotary honors students for making a difference

Three outstanding middle and high school students were recognized Nov. 29 by the Rotary Club of Arlington for making a difference in their respective schools. The Rotary Club also donated $50 to a charity of the student’s choice.

Post Middle School student Kaden Martinsen sets high personal standards and works diligently until he has achieved them. “He always knows when to be a serious worker, when to have a little fun, and is a friend to all,” teacher Heidi Graham said. Kaden’s $50 contribution will be made to Rascal Rodeo.

Trinity Bowles from Haller Middle School goes out of her way to make sure each person feels welcomed and an important part of Haller. “She embodies servant leadership and is a ray of sunshine to all those with whom she works,” teacher Greer Verrier-Davis said. Trinity’s $50 contribution will be made to Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Aaron Holocke from Weston High School listens to others’ problems and tries to help them. “People enjoy Aaron’s presence because he makes people feel valued,” Principal Will Nelson said. Aaron’s $50 contribution will be made to Youth Dynamics.
