Lynnwood High School

Student Name: CJ Sternfels

Mother's Name: Christine Sternfels

Father's Name: Peter Sternfels

GPA: 3.87

Clubs & Activities: I am involved in several clubs and activities at Lynnwood. The clubs that I am in right now are Hi-Q and Tri-M. Throughout high school, I have been a part of Tri-M, which stands for Modern Music Masters. This club's main focus is a community based service project. One day a year we do a massive food drive that brings in over 20,000 cans, which we then donate to the Lynnwood Food Bank. I have participated in both band and Jazz band all four years. I am currently in Wind Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Band 1. I took part in DECA from my freshman to junior years and Interact in 10th and 11th grade. Junior year, I was the president of Interact and we were able to complete several community service projects.

ASB: I am the Activities Coordinator for Lynnwood High School's ASB. With this position, I am in charge of putting together assemblies, making sure the large calendar is up to date and making sure that everything runs smoothly during events. Our ASB works hard to ensure that Lynnwood is a place of inclusion and that our students feel safe and successful in all aspects of their high school life.

Athletics: I've been in the volleyball program all throughout high school. This year I was on the varsity volleyball team. We had a very successful season, with a league record of 9-3. This record earned us second seed, right behind Arlington and allowed us to host districts. We placed fifth overall in districts.This was hands down my most memorable season and I will forever be thankful for the laughter, memories, and friendships made both on and off the court.

Honors: I am currently enrolled in three AP classes- AP Government and Politics, AP Calculus BC and AP Biology. I have previously taken AP European History, AP Environmental Science and AP Calculus AB.

Awards: "Most Inspirational" for volleyball in 11th grade; Academic honor roll 9th-12th grade;

Rotary Club of Alderwood-Terrace recognition for "Outstanding Service as President of Lynnwood High School Interact Club 2015-2016".

Community Service: Through the clubs that I have been in I have racked up many community service hours. Most of the DECA events that I went to had to do with volunteering through the Junior Achievement program. Through Interact, I helped package and send medical and general health care packages to countries that have been impacted by a natural disaster or who live in extreme poverty. This was made possible through Medical Teams International. Through Tri-M I help in collecting cans that go towards the food drive and then when the food drive ends, I help to organize all the items collected so that they can be donated to the food bank.

Significant School Project: One project that I completed for Lynnwood High school was a fundraiser for the music program. I was able to raise over $1,500 through Pledge365.org. Pledge365 is the nonprofit that I came up with when I was nine years old. It is online-based and focuses on helping schools with anything impacted by budget cuts (programs,sports, books, etc...). Anyone can become a donor and it is extremely easy to sign up.

Future Educational Goals: I hope to attend Western Washington University in the fall of 2017. I will attend the Huxley College of the Environment and earn my degree in environmental science with a focus on marine ecology and biology. After that, I may go on to get a masters in teaching.

Future Career Goals: In the future, I hope to be either a marine biologist, environmental scientist, or a teacher in that subject. As of right now, I am leaning towards becoming an environmental scientist that focuses on the marine environment and finding ways to clean up our oceans and recover some of our ecosystems.

Future Educational Goals: I plan on taking a gap year after high school. I want to explore music in new/innovative ways by meeting new people around the world. I want to take this time out for high school to experience new and creative musical opportunities. And to build a foundation for myself.

Future Career Goals: I want to be a Professional Musician. I want to play drums (and many other instruments like guitar and possibly clarinet) in lots of musical groups/people to experience and explore new possibilities in the culture/history of old (traditional)/new emerging music.

Anything else we should know? I seriously don't think that I wouldn't be so passionate about music if it wasn't for Mr. Darin Faul (the Music Director at Mountlake Terrace High School). The most important thing that Mr. Faul has taught me over the past 4 years that I have been here at MTHS is that "music shouldn't be a competition... it should be a time for you to express and show your true feelings towards the music you are playing. And people listening to you should have the chance to experience that music with you. You can't judge what music is better." (of course those weren’t his exact words… but I think that this will help you get the point). Also... during my spare time I sometimes like to knit.

 

Scriber Lake High

Student Name: EmmaSariah Jensen

Mother's Name: Jessica C. Anderson

Father's Name: Bruce Anderson

GPA: 3.505

Clubs & Activities: I'm not involved in any school clubs but I do like participating and helping the activities we do as a class and as a whole school.

ASB: I have never been in an ASB club but I’ve taken three quarter classes of leadership throughout my high school career. This helped me learn basic teamwork and social skills when you are trying to complete a project or task while working with others.

Athletics: I tried out for my middle school volleyball team but, unfortunately I didn't make the cut. Since then I’ve only been doing sports during my Physical Education classes here at Scriber Lake.

Awards: I have won several recognition rewards from my school throughout the four years I have been going to this school. I was also awarded the hidden winner student of the month by the Edmond's Rotary Club.

Community Service: During my junior year I attended the nursing assistance program at Sno-Isle Tech in Everett, in order to pass my class I had to work 40 hours of community service at a nearby senior living home as a nursing assistant for the nurses who worked there.

Significant School Project: A significant school project that I had accomplished was originally a short story about an important part if my life, which eventually turned into a book that my school published. It was an amazing opportunity to let other experience my work, along with my classmates.

Current Employment: I am currently not employed but I work at home to take care of my big family and our house.

Future Educational Goals: My future educational goals are to, one, go to Shoreline Community College or Edmonds Community College to get my associates of science, and two, work my way up to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and, eventually, the certificate to be a full-fledged nurse.

Future Career Goals: My future career goals include working in a hospital to start, then to gain more experience by becoming a travel nurse. My main goal is to travel to different countries and offer my help and expertise to those who really need it.

Anything else we should know? Something you should know about me is that I plan on doing something big with my life -- something bigger and greater than I am. In the future, my career plan will have some bumps along the way, maybe even a detour, but I will work everyday to accomplish what I am setting out to do.
