Hayle Jameson, Glacier Middle School

“In the words of her teachers, Haley is a school leader, a classroom leader and a top student. She is a dedicated scholar and a model citizen. In addition to her studies, Hayle has also served as a leadership student and lent a hand to many of the school and community service projects that are undertaken by GMS.”

Austyn Young, White River High School

“Austyn is a freshman at White River High School and is involved in Scouts, Key Club and Hornet Pride. He has been elected as bulletin editor for Key Club for next year. This year in Hornet Pride he was in charge of the Attendance Recognition Squad first semester. He worked closely with Mr. Howisey to set practices in place to recognize students with good attendance. He alone contacted over 50 sports teams and businesses asking for prizes to recognize students with good attendance. Austyn was involved in Builder’s Club at GMS, he always dresses up for spirit days and he attended Jostens Leadership Conference this winter where he positively represented WR. He helped with service projects like the Buckley Kiwanis Fishing Derby. He is great student and citizen with a desire to serve others and be a positive Leader at WRHS.”
