Mount Si High School seniors Alie Hall, Carolee McCarty, Olivia Ferreri and Zachary Miller have been named neighborhood students by the Rotary Club of the Snoqualmie Valley.

Each term, Rotary selects four MSHS seniors, nominated by high school staff, who best exemplify Rotary’s motto – “service above self”.

Students are judged on their leadership inside and outside the school, their good citizenship, their academic performance and their involvement in community service. Learn more about the four nominees below:

Alie Hall (nominated by Jill Waskom)

“Alie is secretary of the ASB board of directors and president of the Gay-Straight Alliance Club. She has great vision, organizational skills and is a fantastic communicator. I am delighted with his work ethic, his wealth of new ideas and ways of doing things.

Alie has a penchant for giving voice and representation to those who may not always feel included or accepted by their peers. Alie wants to hear from everyone. She helped lead the survey of all students in the school at the start of the year, giving students the opportunity to have their say and let teachers and administrators know how we are doing. Alie then diligently reviewed the results to create a summary of key points. »

As a student leader in our class, she frequently volunteers for our community service events, such as Fill the Truck and the Giving Tree.

Carolee McCarty (Nominated by Joe Dockery)

“As a member of our television production class, Carolee is the only student to have produced multiple segments that have been featured on both our television show and the district Facebook page. I was very impressed with the leadership skills she displayed. Her kindness and inclusive manner developed a sense of community with all the students she involved in her productions. She is a strong storyteller, whether in film, graphic design or writing. His book on Ethiopia is a shining example of his creativity. This required her to interview children from Ethiopia and work with students from the local primary school to do the illustrations.

Carolee has worked hard to balance a part-time job at our local bakery, running a community film club, community service, and a rigorous academic schedule. She maintained a 3.85 GPA while challenging herself with multiple AP classes.

Olivia Ferreri (Nominated by Jill Waskom)

“Olivia is our MSHS ASB Treasurer and her service and leadership is outstanding. Olivia leads by example, demonstrating positivity, inclusion and encouragement to everyone she works with. In her role as Treasurer, she works closely with our ASB Financial Secretary and helps them manage all of our ASB financial transactions.

Olivia is an incredible human! Kind, compassionate and gracious at heart. Olivia genuinely cares about everyone and her desire to address and find solutions to big issues demonstrates the kind of citizen she is.

Olivia wants to be a doctor one day and loves dancing. She has planned several service events this year that have benefited our MSHS student body and the Snoqualmie Valley community. Olivia led the organization of the Fill the Truck event to benefit local food banks. She also helped promote a pop-up event for Bloodworks NW at Snoqualmie Town Hall”

Zachary Miller (nominated by Joe Dockery)

“Zachary is one of those caring and engaged students who makes teaching such a pleasure. He is always full of great ideas and always the first to volunteer for a project.

During Zach’s freshman year, he spent his first semester working on our school play, then diving at the Key Club. He was very involved in our planning for Bark of Life. He designed graphics for our digital displays, found the judges for our customization/tips contest, and was a constant part of our planning meetings. During the event, he was actively engaged, serving as a liaison with the human society. Zach works hard and always got me A’s.

Outside of school, he volunteers as a foster brother for the kittens. He is able to pour out his love for animals by helping them become good pets and helping them find loving homes.
