Student of the Year

At meetings this month, we recognized three incredible students as Students of the Year and awarded each a $4,000 scholarship!

Mikayla Hubbard


Mikayla Hubbard is a senior at Henry M. Jackson High School.  She is both the National Honor Society Co-President and the Associated Student Body President.  She manages to be actively involved in both roles with seemingly endless energy and commitment to both groups.  The number of extra hours she has put in for events and activities is immense.  According to Principal Peters, Mikayla is kind, thoughtful, helpful, and truly betters the lives of the people she is with.  Mikayla is, without a doubt, an excellent leader.

Mikayla will be attending the University of California Berkeley in fall with plans to study Political Science and Government. Mikayla is shown with Dave Peters, Rotarian and Jackson High Principal. Congratulations Mikayla!
