Shorecrest student received Alpha Delta Kappa scholarship

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Alpha Delta Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa (an international fraternal organization of women educators who support education, children and families, and world understanding) recently awarded two $1,000 scholarships. Graduating seniors from Shorecrest, Shorewood, and Edmonds-Woodway high schools who plan to make education their career were urged to apply.

After interviews, Cami Jones from Shorecrest and Kaelah Gendron from Edmonds-Woodway were chosen.  

Cami Jones
Cami Jones, who has a history of volunteering in her mother’s kindergarten classroom, being a peer tutor for special education students at Kellogg and Shorecrest, teaching special education swimming lessons at the YMCA, and taking courses in Child Development and Child Psychology, also had time to serve her school on Varsity Cheer and ASB, and to work.

She plans to attend Shoreline Community College for two years and then transfer to City University, earning her teaching certificate and becoming a special education teacher.

Kaelah Gendron
Kaelah Gendron is motivated to learn by her fascination with the world and the inspiration of innovative teachers.

An excellent student in many honors and IB courses, she has volunteered at Sherwood Elementary School and worked on Key Club and History Club projects, including taking oral histories from senior citizens for the Edmonds Museum.

Kaelah has learned Irish dance and Tae Kwon Do. Next year, Kaelah will enter the University of Washington where she will major in biology and minor in Spanish.  She plans to become a biology teacher.
