During their weekly ZOOM meeting, the Deer Park Rotary Club selected their Students Of The Month for October.
Souren Rainey, a senior at Mary Walker High School, is originally from Texas. He is class president and treasurer of the Mary Walker National Honor Society. Souren’s mother is a teacher at Mary Walker, and Souren helps tutor students online when needed. In addition to his high school education, Souren attends Spokane Falls Community College in the Running Start Program, with an interest in Pre-med. He excels in math and science, enjoys learning, and is pursuing a double major. He hopes to attend John Hopkins University, but most likely will be looking at University of Washington. In response to the question about “all on-line” classes at Mary Walker, Souren said it’s been challenging since many students do not have internet availability. He goes to Mary Walker or Spokane Falls to do his classes online. When not in school, he enjoys snowboarding.
Riverside High School Senior Aliviah Stime joined the ZOOM meeting from her car at a Boise Starbucks while visiting Boise State University. She has been a student at Riverside Schools since kindergarten. Her father is volleyball coach at the high school and her mother is a nurse at Sacred Heart Hospital. Aliviah has participated in Track and Field and Cross Country at Riverside, but her main sport is volleyball. She has played Club Volleyball since she was nine years old, and is looking forward to getting back to practice and games when they restart. She is the Riverside High School Student Body President and a Rambassador. Aliviah is pursuing Art and Graphic Design, hopefully at Boise State University.
Diego Vasquez, Deer Park High School Student Body President, was introduced by Principal Joe Feist, who said that Diego is a model student who has been very active at the school. He’s originally from Peru, and came here in 2009. He excels in math and English as a second language, and is a member of Deer Park High School Link Crew. He plays football and is a member of a highly competitive soccer team that competes throughout the United States. He likes to hang out with his friends, and enjoys snowboarding in the winter months. Although very busy, he “takes care of his family and friends before he takes care of himself”. He wants to play soccer in college and beyond and is looking at a future in Physical Therapy.
