We are happy to announce our February 2021 Student of the Month, Lenna Miskimens.
 
Lenna is another outstanding 2021 grad who makes YHS proud. She balances her commitments well, excelling in her academics while being involved in sports, leadership, and National Honor Society. She is also an active member of her church and community. She has taken on the roles of Basketball team captain and YHS Greenhouse manager this year as she also continues to be a leader in the classroom with a passion for helping other students. This passion along with her outgoing personality, strong work ethic and positivity will suit her well in her chosen field of psychology as she pursues this career after graduation.  The Rotary Club of Yelm and all of Yelm High School congratulates this exemplary grad!
 
January 2021 Student of the Month, Cassandra Shaw.We are happy to announce our January 2021 Student of the Month, Cassandra Shaw, class of 2021.
 
Cassandra, who goes by Cassie, is an outstanding addition to the YHS family this year. Cassie's upbeat personality is equally matched with her determination and contagious positive attitude.
When not volunteering at the Yelm Prairie Christian Center or other organizations, she is working diligently on her classwork as well as on scholarships and her college applications. According to her teacher, Joel McMillan, her attitude makes her a powerful presence in class, even via zoom. She has high expectations for herself and is always rising to the occasion. She hopes to attend one of her dream schools next year where she will study Creative Writing, screenwriting and other arts in hopes of writing and producing her own show. On her list of colleges is Stanford, Rice University, USC and more. She is aiming high! We have no doubt that Cassie will be a huge success and play an important role wherever she lands.
It is our honor to announce our December 2020 Student of the Month, Mina Siatuu from the Class of 2021.
 
Mina has been a student or ASB leader in some way, since her Freshman year. She serves as YHS ASB Treasurer and the FBLA Vice President and, in spite of the distance learning circumstances, has been able to learn and grow in her responsibilities. Mina is kind, calm and committed to achieving. Mina takes multiple honors and AP courses and, as not a native English speaker, has worked hard to maintain a high GPA throughout high school, especially during virtual learning. She volunteers in the community and has big plans of going to a military school upon graduation.

We are excited to announce our November 2020 Student of the Month, Olivia Perry.
 
Olivia has a heart of service and is always looking to serve others. She is involved with numerous organizations both in and out of school. She is currently the YHS FFA secretary where she spends time taking minutes and works on committee’s such as Adopt a Family. She has been the head of this committee for 3 years, the past 2 of which we have had record collection numbers. Olivia also serves in other ways through her Church. She volunteers in the daycare during service and has taught some of the younger Sunday school classes. She is also an Honor Society member and summer camp leader.
In addition to being an outstanding community member, Olivia is also an excellent student. She is a running start student at Clover Park and attends classes at the High School to stay connected. She is going to school to be a pilot and has already been doing practice flying! She has maintained excellent grades throughout all of high school all while pouring herself into her volunteer activities.
 
She also has a competitive side to her and she loves to compete on the volleyball court as well as in FFA competitions. Olivia has played on the High school and club volleyball teams for all 4 years of high school (except for this COVID year). In FFA she has excelled in her 2 contest sales and nursery landscape. The last 2 years their Nursery Landscape team has taken 2nd place in the State. It is all due to her constant effort and study skills. She will complete this Spring again for another shot at winning first and going to Nationals. We are proud of Olivia and excited for her future!

We are pleased to announce our October 2020 Student of the month Paulina Flores Hernadez - Class of 2021
Paulina is every teacher's dream. She is a hard worker and strives for academic excellence. She plays an active role in supporting her family, is responsible enough to hold a job outside of school to pay for the College in the High School credits (which also shows her determination and drive), and helps lead the YHS LatinX club. Paulina is also friendly and always willing to help her peers and teachers. Over the last few months, Paulina has volunteered after school to help several native Spanish speakers communicate with their teachers and help tutor students in both ability to communicate and content area classes. She doesn’t just do her work but she goes out of her way to help others find success. She is a leader in the YHS LatinX club, Tutors peers (both English and in Spanish) and is involved in Church activities where she mentors younger students, participates in cultural dancing, helps put on festivals and more.
She also plays Volleyball, Translates for our Latin Community, and participates in leadership activities during the summer.
Her goal is to become a kindergarten teacher and we have no doubt that this hard working young lady with a huge heart can succeed.
 
Thank you to our business partners. We all wish you the very best!
