The Rotary Club of Yelm is honored to announce Joe Donan as our 2015-16 Student of the Year. Joe Donan is an incredible choice for the Rotary Student of the Year Scholarship. Joe's high school career has shown incredible achievement in class, in multiple leadership activities and on the athletic field. Academically, Joe is a top student who is headed to the University of Washington Bothell Campus to study engineering design. During his time at YHS Joe earned multiple recognitions for his work on the Robotics Team which competed well at the state level. Joe's leadership with the team was exemplified by high levels of collaboration and teamwork which allowed the group to excel at state. Joe has also been a significant leader across campus, helping out with College Signing Day, Prairie Days, student elections and student events. Athletically, Joe competed at the district level in the pole vault and varied events on our track team. Joe is charismatic, positive and always willing to help his peers and teachers. Joe Donan embodies all the core values we communicate here at Yelm High School.
