Four SHS Students Awarded as Washington Scholars
(Date Posted 5/20/2015)

Some exciting news from Shelton High School! 4 of the 15 Washington Scholars in  the 35th district are from SHS! Congratulations to:

Kaitlyn Barkley, Psychology
Kara Barkman, Political Science/Global Studies
Shaye Kane, Accounting
Georgette Lugalia, Civil Engineering

The 1981 Legislature created the Washington Scholars program to honor the accomplishments of the most exemplary high school seniors graduating in Washington each year. The award represents the highest meritorious academic honor conferred on these young residents by the state’s government and education leaders. High school principals were encouraged to nominate the top one percent of their graduating senior classes for Washington Scholars recognition on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. Historically, designation has been limited to three Scholars and one alternate in each of the state’s 49 legislative districts. This year recognition has been extended to all eligible students nominated by their high school principals. Washington State Scholars Award Directory

Dr. Jarvis Transitioning to Renton School District
(Date Posted 5/18/2015)
Dr. Art Jarvis, Interim Superintendent for the Shelton School District, has accepted a similar position with the Renton School District for the coming school year, 2015-2016.  He will begin the transition to his new position this spring and will be spending one or two days per week in Renton in addition to his time in Shelton.   Dr. Jarvis stated, “I am grateful to the Shelton School Board for the opportunity to serve the Shelton community this year.  I am also appreciative that the Shelton Board would release me from my contract for twelve days to help me get started in Renton.  While that will save some money for Shelton, Dr. Apostle and I will still be able to spend time in the transition here.  My thanks to everyone.”
