Notebook Computers Awarded to Two Outstanding Continuing High School Graduates
Dorothy Skjonsby and Mary Lou Lowry coordinated the awarding of notebook computers to two Humboldt County high school students. These students were selected by their teachers for their outstanding high school performance and interest in continuing education.
Magaly Gema Orea graduated from East High School, Fortuna on May 26, 2023. The faculty at East High recognized Magaly as a hard-working student who is committed to community service and continuing her education after graduation. Teacher Jacey Spies noted that Magaly volunteered in the afternoon with the Life Skills classroom and is currently working hard to get her paraprofessional certification, with plans to go to school after graduation to become an elementary educator.
The other awardee, Shasta Kirby, recently earned her high school diploma from Eureka Adult School and intends to further her education at College of the Redwoods. She completed her diploma while working full time, caring for her family, and tending to her small farm of rescue animals. Her teacher Rebecca Twiss wrote that “Shasta is remarkable for her dedication, perseverance, and positivity. Her high level of engagement and ability to advocate for herself are strengths that will lead to success in all of her endeavors.”
Our chapter has been offering an annual award to one or two outstanding female continuation high school students in the county for about 40 years now, starting out by awarding dictionaries but shifting to digital platforms as the times have changed, with this year’s awardees each receiving a notebook computer.
