Student of the Month
April 2023: Congrats to Jasis Simons!
Jasis is a senior at Cascade High School. She is taking Online Myth & Legend as an English elective. She logs in consistently and paces herself well in the course. Her work is thoughtful and thorough and demonstrates a curiosity about the world.
Jasis says, “Taking an online course has been a great learning experience! For this particular course, I have learned about many different myths, and learned how to deeply analyze them to get a better understanding of their purpose in all sorts of different cultures.“
In her spare time, Jasis enjoys reading, writing, art and dance. She finds that these activities allow her to express herself and relax. Here is an illustration she drew in response to our work on the Greek myth about Echo which was accompanied by a written explanation of the characterization and drama it illustrates:
After high school, Jasais plans to attend a 2-year college. After that, anything is possible!

February 2023: Congratulations to Sekani Mallahan - our February Online Student of the Month!
Sekani made great strides this semester. Sekani said “I was able to look past mental health issues that held me back and go from failing all my classes to passing all of them.” This semester he has learned how to ‘push through’ some of these obstacles and has succeeded. A big part of this process was Sekani learning how to be an advocate for himself. He noted, “I learned to communicate even though I wasn't able to do that very well before.” Building relationships with his instructors and regular attendance were key components to his success along with his ability to analyze and articulate his strengths and weaknesses.
The online team is incredibly proud of Sekani. We are looking forward to seeing Sekani continuing to build upon his success.
January 2023: Congratulations to Everett High School senior Kellen Chambers, our January 2023 Online Student of the month recipient. Kellen did an outstanding job in online Civics, submitting all of his work on time and leading by example. In addition to Civics, Kellen has taken four other online classes with us. He feels he is more successful when he is able to work at his own pace. He said taking an online social studies class allowed him to free up his schedule. When asked what he liked about online classes Kellen said, “I like the flexibility of online classes. I can complete my work when I feel I am ready to complete it and can move ahead when I want. This allows me to do my work in chunks at a time and if I am overloaded with another course but am ahead in this one I can focus just on the other course.” Kellen plans on finishing his coursework at EvCC to earn a nursing degree (RN) and then he will transfer to UW Bothell for their nursing program to earn a BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing). Congratulations Kell
