Edmonds Heights K-12
Student Name: Sierra Buck-Flinchum
Mother’s Name: Alicia Buck
Father’s Name: Kyle Flinchum
Clubs & Activities: Last year I was in Leadership, Advanced Musical Theatre, and Student Council! I also tried to start a club, “Kindness Krew” but it didn’t launch due to COVID-19. This year I am in Advanced Musical Theatre and a new club, Students Organized Against Racism. I was also just selected to join the Superintendent Student Advisory Committee! I’m also part of an amazing service-based organization called The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. It’s for girls 11-20 and focuses on building leadership skills, community service, public speaking, friendship, and pretty much getting girls ready for life! This summer I was appointed a state officer. One of my responsibilities is to redesign our Pledge Program for girls ages 8 to 10, who aren’t quite old enough to be a Rainbow Girl. It introduces them to service opportunities, teaching them that they can make a difference in their community – especially from home, and highlights the importance of taking care of your mind, body and soul.
ASB: Edmonds Heights doesn’t have “ASB” but there’s a Student Council, which I participated in last year, and it’s not really a thing this year, but if it was I would have signed up!
Awards: This past summer in Rainbow I received an award for showing outstanding leadership and service to Rainbow.
Community Service: Through my involvement in Rainbow I have raised money and done service for NW Harvest, Feeding America, Treehouse (non-profit serving youth in foster care), and many more!
Educational Goals: Next year I am taking a gap year! There’s a lot of uncertainty about what the pandemic will look like in the future, but I want to wait to take higher education until I can be in an actual classroom.
Anything else we should know? I would like to thank my family, friends, Rainbow pals, teachers, and especially my mom. If I didn’t have your constant love and support, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity or be the Sierra I am today. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
