While Youth Peace Park received a paint job on its climbing wall and Hickok Park got the same for its table and bench, landscaped areas along assorted sidewalks were weeded and received freshly planted flowers, including the areas around the Marysville City Hall where the Community Shred-A-Thon started at 9 a.m., filling up trucks with tax paperwork and other sensitive personal and financial documents to be shredded. Graffiti eradication units likewise met up at Cedarcrest Middle School at 9 a.m. to spread out throughout the community, joining trash pickup crews at the Marysville Library and the intersection of Interstate 5 and Fourth Street, while other litter details headed out to MarysvillePilchuck High School, Totem Middle School and Smokey Point Boulevard between 106th to 116th streets, the latter of which also saw trees planted along the sides of the street. Perhaps one of the more popular activities of the day, at least in terms of the diversity of its attendees, was the planting of native trees and shrubs at the Qwuloolt Estuary Restoration Project site by Harborview Park, which drew young people from as far away as Mill Creek, such as Girl Scouts Seoyun Chon and Siena Mandy, and Snohomish, such as high school students Nathan Stockwell and Brandon SEE EARTH, PAGE 2 Students see options at Opportunity Expo BY KIRK BOXLEITNER TULALIP — The second annual Opportunity Expo saw a surge of attendees in the morning followed by relatively sparser crowds later in the day on Tuesday, April 16, but Marysville School District officials and students from a number of different districts touted the value of the event’s offerings. “We received about 500 students for our morning reception, which was more than we expected,” said Jodi Runyon, executive assistant to the superintendent of the Marysville School District, who estimated that approximately 1,500 visitors stopped by throughout the day, from Marysville and other school districts. “We were a bit disappointed at the afternoon’s turnout, which probably saw about 100 people. We might be rethinking that portion of the event, although we haven’t had a chance to debrief yet, so no decisions have been made.” The Marysville School District bused all 11th-grade students from all eight high schools to either the 8 a.m. or noon sessions in the Tulalip Resort Orca and Chinook ballrooms, while the 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. sessions were designated for other school districts. Students in grades 8, 9, 10 and 12 were encouraged to attend between 2:30-4:30 p.m. with their parents, but Runyon acknowledged that SEE EXPO, PAGE 2 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo Emily Romeis of Lakewood and Sierra Reed of Lake Stevens discuss degree programs with representatives of George Fox University at the April 16 Opportunity Expo. 764403 WS
