This month’s Star Award goes to… Tumwater High School This month, Tumwater High School won the award not just for their service, but for their communication as well! Many clubs have been struggling with the new dues system and this club in particular has had their own fair share of troubles! However, Tumwater has continually kept me updated on their situation with their dues. They have informed me of any problems they are facing and have asked for advice on how to solve their issues. It hasn’t just been once that they came to me for help but multiple times! This club is a great example of effective communication and how questions can take you a long ways! Anyways, keep up the great work and continue to share any difficulties you are having, even if they seem small and insignificant! Good job, and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for this year!
