Hanna Novy – Arlington SD - Post Middle School
Hanna Novy is a very responsible and hard working young woman. She represents what is best about our youth today. She strives to be the best she can by while practicing good citizenship and critical thinking skills in all she does. She portrays all of the attributes necessary for good leadership. She is a good listener, leads by example and empowers her peers by providing encouragement and asking good questions that make them think. She does not demand or push to get her own agenda. She allows others to see the positive that she exemplifies and that makes them want to follow her.
Hanna will do amazing things in this world. Her curiosity kindles high levels of learning. She poses intelligent questions in class that are well beyond her years. She is quietly tenacious. If something goes not come easy to her, she works to improve rather than give up.
Hanna was a natural for this award and represents what we strive to cultivate in our middle level students at Post. We are proud of Hanna.
Hanna donated her Pay It Forward donation of $50 from Rotary to World Vision Organization specifically to the support in the Philippines.
Alfred Mugho – Darrington SD – Darrington HS
My name is Alfred Mugho and I am currently a sophomore at Darrington High School. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia on February 24 1998. I have two sisters, one born in Florida and the other born in my hometown of Mombasa Kenya. My parents are from Kenya in Africa and moved here in 1997 for work. Since then I have lived in Gainesville, Florida where my sister Elizabeth was born, Toronto Canada and Issaquah Washington until in 2003, my family returned to Kenya where I which would become my home for the next 10 and a half years. We moved around Kenya but finally we settled down in Mombasa which is the second largest city in the country and where my second sister was born. There, I attended the Aga Khan Academy of Mombasa, an international IB system school up until halfway through 8th grade. My parents then decided it would be best I moved back here, with my aunt and uncle so as to get integrated with US education, and they just so happened to live in Darrington.
I started school here at the start of second semester grade 8. It was a scary experience, coming to pretty much a new continent where you knew only two people and I didn’t know what to expect, all I knew is that I had to work hard and achieve my full potential to become the best I could possibly be. Since then Darrington has been my new home, I have been here for around two years and I have been happy and stable, every summer I go back to Kenya to visit family and friends, but there are times it has been tough. My current GPA is a 3.973 for this year and which is how I ended my 9th grade year, but this year I am sure I can get it up to a 4.0. This year I also played football which turned out to be great with us, the Loggers making the playoffs, with me being used to soccer I ended up being kicker throughout the season. Now I am starting wrestling which I believe I am going to enjoy a lot. So far, I have 13 hours of community service mostly with the Glad Tidings Assembly church in Darrington where I helped out every Sunday morning with preparing breakfast for the kids. I am also currently president of my grade. For my leadership project I also hope to be able to put up a sign on the Darrington Community Center to better represent our school. I am also thinking about joining honor society.
Out of school I enjoy hanging out with friends, playing video games and watching movies. I am also very passionate about Art, in particular drawing cars and last year a lot of my work was showcased. I also have fun breakdancing and listening to music, and probably my most favorite hobby playing soccer. I talk to my parents about once a week, and being 12,000 miles away and 11 hours behind them, you can imagine how much I look forward to summer. My goals include having a Master’s degree in Automotive Engineering and Design and as well as possibly an Associate’s degree in Renewable energy considering the world growing energy needs. I would also be great to attend an Ivy League College such as MIT but that is the best case scenario. Ultimately, my career goal is to become a Vehicle Designer and Engineer or even an Exotic Propulsion Engineer and designer at NASA or Boeing. I have many dreams and goals but it will obviously take hard work, perseverance and dedication to reach them.
Pay it forward – Darrington Food Bank

Denis and Maureen have four children. Their grandchildren are a source of great joy as willl be the arrival of a third grandchild in December.
Denis lived most of his early days in Cranbrook, BC. When he was home from his studies at UBC he hosted the "Early Boyd" show at a local radio station which nurtured his love for music. Denis gave that up for a career in Psychology. Starting his own private practice 31 years ago, Denis now has 18 therapists working with him aincluding two of his children. In his counseling and teaching, Denis focuses on marriage, grief and stress...totally unrelated of course.
Denis joined Rotary in 1996 and is delighted and honoured to be par of an organization that puts Service Above Self. He had a chance to meet many enthusiatic Rotarians when he was the dean of the District 5050 Rotary Leadership Institute.
In his spare time (!) Denis enjoys photography, walkiong, fine scotch/wine and time with his family.
