I just wanted to let you know of a super cool think that happened this morning. No one was invited because it was at 7:00 a.m!
Well, her hard work has paid off. Lindsay was awarded this morning for Student of the quarter. BHS staff members are chosen throughout the school year to choose a student who they want to recognize for their efforts. Whether is be academic, leadership, hard work, tenacity, a great attitude, what ever! It was a lovely ceremony with incredible diversity and an extremely wide range of accomplishment. We were so impressed with the students who were recognized. Especially the two from Italy recognized by a notoriously “weird” chemistry teacher!
Lindsay was recognized for her work with SLAM (Student Lives Always Matter) Club. What her advisor shared was that with Lindsay’s leadership the group has grown. They have successfully done outreach seminars at McClure Middle School on Queen Anne. With Lindsay’s leadership they are set to add Salmon Bay Middle School to their tour. The advisor also shared that since Lindsay has taken over, they have seen an increase in the number of students who come to the student health center to get help with their depression, anxiety, and feelings of despair. We couldn’t be prouder of this acknowledgment for her dedication and hard work. I just wanted to share this really cool news. Also, she will be a TA in special ed next semester and is playing unified sports with basket ball and soccer this spring (under the Special Olympics umbrella). Seems she is finding her place in this world.
