Another great person who received a spectacular award was Mike Stempe. He previously taught history at Carlé and helped it grow into the beautiful flower it is today. Stempe received the Youth Advocate of the Year award which Carlé staff as a whole received last year. It takes much dedication and love to students to receive this honor. We here at Carlé are very proud of you.
Another special person to Carlé, Frank Meisenbach, won the Environmental Award for his work with the community. Over the years Frank has donated plants, trees and flowers to Carlé and many other parts of this county to make our school and community more beautiful. In addition Frank has also donated trees that we have planted along Seigler Canyon creek in our watershed restoration project. Frank has done so much for this community that we really are happy to see him receive this award.
We have many portfolios this month and that means we have more graduating seniors. On March twenty-second Laura Bal presented her portfolio and earned an excellent review on it. She worked very hard and is now ready to start her adult life.
Another hard working student, Zanetta Phillips, presented her very creative portfolio on March twenty-seventh. She too is ready to start her adult life. Thanks to our excellent staff that works endlessly, these students along with many others will be more than ready for the real world.
We would like to thank a number of people for their help. First a very special, appreciative thank you goes to Chuck Doty and Easton Manson. They together donated eight hundred and fifty dollars for 42 senior plaques. This money will be used to purchase all the materials so our own school based student designers can make an individual plaque for each of our graduating seniors.
These will be mementos that students will have for the rest of their lives. Another thank you goes to Mrs. Orr for donating nine computers to us. These computers will help students advance their education. One of our computer whizzes named Faron Moran will make these computers like new. We will then allow our whole student body to request to be awarded one of these computers with monitors, mice and keyboards donated by the school. Students and their families will then own these computers and we hope this will be a start to reduce the digital divide that many of our students experience. Thanks for reading! Tune in next week!
