In an online meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on October 20th honored three local high school students as Rotary Students of the Month.

Each month during the school year the club recognizes outstanding high school students in the city of Everett for their accomplishments and their promise.

Cascade High School’s October Student of the Month is Arshpreet Kaur. Arshpreet is a natural leader, very optimistic and striving to improve. She stays busy with AP (advanced placement) classes and is captain of the Girls’ Wrestling Team, a Link Crew Leader, NHS officer and a member of the Everett Youth Advisory Board.

Sequoia High School’s Student of the Month for October is Leyla Ozturk. Leyla is a highly motivated student who pushes herself in all her classes, but especially AP. She’s enrolled in the dental program at Sno-Isle TECH and will follow her dream of being a dental assistant after she graduates in June. In her spare time, she enjoys being outside with her dog.

Student of the Month from Everett High School is Amina Hussein. Amina is pro-active, passionate, and dedicated. She was born in a Kenyan refugee camp and survived Malaria before moving to the US. Whether helping her AVID peers during tutorials, advocating for equity in education in Olympia, or fighting for social justice at Everett High, Amina cares deeply for her peers and the community.
