Student of the Month

At this Wednesday's meeting, we recognized two incredible students.  

Laura Mustach

The theme for our Student of the Month for February is "Excellence in Fine Arts."  Our Student of the Month from Henry M. Jackson High School is Laura Mustach.  Laura is a senior and was selected to receive the Mill Creek Rotary Student of the Month award for "Excellence in Fine Arts" because of her depth, breadth, and impact.  Laura has been involved in the theatre program since her freshman year.  For the past two years she is the lead for the Saint Crew and is the production manager for Jackson's spring play, "A Comedy of Errors."  Her passion and talents in fine arts extend to ceramics as well. Laura Is known for her detailed and complex pieces.  She serves as an integral resource for other students in the upper-level ceramics class and has served as an instructor in the community teaching pottery day-camps to 5-14 year old students. 
Laura plans to take a gap year to save money for college with a goal of attending Evergreen College to study ceramics, science and veterinary medicine. Congratulations Laura!

Cami Taliaferro-Barber

From  Archbishop Murphy High School, Cami Taliaferro-Barber, is the February Student of the Month for excellence in "Fine Arts."  Cami makes artistic contributions to virtually every performing arts endeavor at Archbishop Murphy and her contagious enthusiasm for performing is inspirational. Cami brings her strong mezzo-soprano voice to the choir program, including the Liturgy choir, and the Choral-Aires, our honor choir. Her poise and versatility are evident in her multiple support roles in our Spring Musicals and dramatic productions-- acting, dancing, singing, painting sets, and offering her powerful creative and organizational skills. Cami naturally embraces leadership roles, serving as assistant director and costume designer for the fall play and as the technical director for this year's spring musical. 
To quote Ms. Wright, her choir teacher: 'To have a student like Cami is every director’s dream.'  In addition to her dedication in the classroom and our Fine Arts program, Cami has been a member of the nerd and books for breakfast club, link crew and has participated in girl’s tennis for three years.  During her time at Archbishop Murphy, Cami has volunteered over 90 hours at local organizations such as Harbor light church fundraiser and adopt-a-highway trash clean up.
Cami has applied to multiple universities and plans to study theatre production and minor in business.  Congratulations Cami!
