Rotary February 2021 Students Of The Month

Taylor Lyons – Deer Park High School

Taylor Lyons, a senior at Deer Park High School, is also a Running Start student at Spokane Community College. She loves the social aspect of school, but especially loves the freedom to work and go to the gym that Running Start allows her. She does all of her classes on-line and is able to work on her own schedule. She is an athlete, and has been playing basketball since third grade. In introducing her, Principal Joe Feist called her a “rock star and good citizen”. Her ambition is to major in Physical Training, with a minor in High School Athletic Coaching at Whitworth University.  She may very well return to her high school as the Head Coach! Taylor’s mother also attended Deer Park HS, and graduated in 1990.

Emily Santos- Riverside High School

Principal Clint Hall introduced Emily Santos as “one of our best and brightest”. She is a tennis and soccer player, and is ASB Class President. Emily is still exploring her college options, and would like to pursue a major in Computer Science with a concentration in Cyber Security. She plays the piano, and loves spending time with her family. Her current coursework includes AP English, calculus, and art. Additionally, she is looking forward to soccer starting. You can currently see Emily featured on a billboard as you are heading north on Highway 2, located by North 40.

There was no student from Mary Walker this month.
