Georgia Goff, a student from University High School, was elected district secretary for the area’s Key Club International at the Pacific Northwest District Convention held in Seattle in early March.

Key Club is an international organization that provides opportunities for community service, encouraging local leadership and engagement among high school students. As district secretary, Goff will represent over 13,000 students across Washington, Oregon, Idaho Panhandle, Northern California, Alaska and British Columbia.

Class helps fire-hit schools

The third-graders at St. George’s School are donating $646.19 to the Paradise Unified School District in northern California, which faced large amounts of loss and destruction in last year’s wildfires and is still trying to rebuild.

The funds were raised from their class business, the Sunny Snack Shack, and will go toward purchasing science kits and facilitating a field trip for Paradise first- and third-grade students to visit the spring wildflower blooms at Table Mountain.
