Arlington Rotary Club awards outstanding students

ARLINGTON – Five outstanding students were recognized Feb. 28 by the Rotary Club of Arlington for making a difference in their schools, and the recognition came with $50 for each to donate to a favorite charity.

Arlington High School student Abril Hernandez is a native Spanish speaker who has only been learning English for a few years.

“Despite this, she has taken on German as a third language and excelling as one of my top students,” teacher Ben Mendro said.

Abril is donating her $50 to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services.

Ava Iverson, also from AHS, is a member of the school’s leadership class who never fails to volunteer her time before or after school to help with various projects that are asked of the class, ASB/Leadership teachers Julie Martin and Aly Schenavar said.

Ava is donating to the Humane Society of Skagit County.

Weston High School student Breoni (Bee) Sylvester is thoughtful and especially welcoming to new students.

“Bee always stands up for what is right by supporting her classmates and our school culture,” Weston Principal Will Nelson said.

Bee’s $50 contribution will be made to NOAH, or the Northwest Organization for Animal Help.

Haller Middle School’s Chloe Fochesato is a class leader always willing to help others with their work and explain concepts to those who are struggling, science teacher Scott Rice said. “She is a team player who makes everyone in her lab groups learn as much as possible.”

Camano Island Animal Shelters will be getting Chloe’s contribution.

Post Middle School student Jayden Rivera has made huge strides from his sixth to seventh grade years.

“He is coming to school and has been moved into advanced coursework including Algebra in eighth grade,” Principal Voni Walker said. “We are so proud of his progress.”

Jayden’s $50 contribution will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
