Colin Buchholz from Whittell H.S. has been an outstanding student with an A average in all classes for the four years he was there. He was selected to the National Honor Society and the Key Club. Colin also participated and excelled in football, golf, and basketball. He was the team captain when Whittell won the basketball state championship. Colin did volunteer work for the Rotary, March of Dimes, the K-9 Trials, and the United Blood Services. He hopes to pursue a major in biology and pre-med at the University of Oregon or the University of Nevada. We feel certain he will attain his goals.
Grace Gautereaux from Douglas H.S is a young woman interested in making changes in our society to overcome any kind of prejudice. She founded SAGA on her high school campus to promote sexuality and gender acceptance. Her interest in politics has already turned into action by helping with the Democratic caucus in February. Grace studied Psychology, US History, US Government, Speech and Debate, and four years of French. She plans to pursue political science at Willamette College in Oregon where she is currently enrolled. No doubt, she will have a profound influence on the future generation.
