Announcing our March 2021 Student of the Month, Joe Harrison.
 
Joe is an incredibly caring and dedicated 
Yelm High School

senior. He is very active in school and community activities all while maintaining great grades. He has continued to stay very involved and connected in school even during remote learning. He is in the YHS Symphonic Band and Marching Band and recently obtained the rank of Eagle Scout! This student who is a survivor and worked hard to live a normal life despite life-long health challenges has made a big difference in the lives of others through his service, especially his Eagle Scout project. His project included getting and filling backpacks for foster children to be given to them upon entering the foster system. These backpacks were filled with clothes, snacks, toiletries, blankets and toys. Joe doubled the amount of backpacks he was aiming to put together for his impactful project. Joe plans on going to the University of Colorado to study astronomy or astrophysics in the fall. They are lucky to have him as he will no doubt make a positive impact there as well!
