ARLINGTON- Three middle and high school students were recognized Nov. 29 by the Rotary Club of Arlington for making a difference in their respective schools, and the accolades came with $50 for each to donate to a charity of their 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,” said Heidi Graham, English Language Arts (ELA) teacher at Post Middle School. “He is the kind of kid I want to teach all day!” 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 individual – peers and adults – 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,” said Greer Verrier-Davis, ELA teacher at Haller Middle School. 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,” Weston Principal Will Nelson said. “This admirable trait permeates our school when Aaron is around.”

Aaron’s $50 contribution will be made to Arlington Youth Dynamics.
