Rotary Club of Everett honors November Students of the Month

Rotary Club of Everett honored three high school students as November’s Rotary Students of the Month. Each month during the school year the club recognizes outstanding students in Everett for their accomplishments and their promise.

November students are:

Jasmin Rivas-Pacheco, Sequoia High School.

Jasmin is an incredibly driven student, her advisor reports, and is proactive, passionate and willing to help anyone at any time. She plans to graduate early, in February, and attend Central Washington University, where she will study education with an emphasis in art. She wants to be an art teacher.

Caroline Sontra, Everett High School.

Her advisor says that Caroline shows up early and stays late, and she skillfully balances assertiveness, strength and courage with flexibility, empathy, openness to feedback and grace. Everything she touches — a project, an assignment, a group she works with — is better, stronger and sparkling with good, because of her touch. She plans to study biology at Northwest University in Kirkland. She wants to be a veterinarian.

Aashna Singh, Cascade High School.

Aashna has been a class officer or an ASB officer during her four years at Cascade. Aashna has been involved in National Honor Society, Link Crew, Interact Club and chair of the Cascade High School Food Drive. She has been active through her youth group, neighborhood service, community planting events and Comcast Cares Days.
