Rosalba P., a student at Port Susan Middle School, and Ashley K., a student at Utsalady Elementary, received the 2008-09 Board of Directors' Shining Star Award for working hard and showing that they can overcome challenges. Port Susan Principal Allen told the Board of Directors that Rosalba moved here two years ago from Mexico and is very focused on learning English and her studies. Rosalba helps to show new students around the school and has a positive attitude and a smile on her face. Utsalady Elementary Principal Keller and Utsalady teacher Mrs. Simoneschi introduced Ashley and her positive attitude and contributions at school.

The Stanwood-Camano Board of Directors offers the Shining Star Award to one student at each school during the year. The award is to acknowledge elementary through high school students for their hard work to overcome challenges and be a positive "shining star" in their school.

Congratulations Rosalba and Ashley! Keep up the good work!
