Senior Spotlights Hailey Nava, Lynden Ellie VanHulzen, Lynden Christian Even in COVID, she is ‘thankful for everything I have’

She became a student leader at LHS and now feels prepared for college and nursing goals    Hailey Nava is in a position now to reflect upon her four years at Lynden High School, something she was very nervous about when it started.    Nava has served this past year as vice president of the Lynden Associated Student Body. She was in student government in some way or another all of her four years.    This avenue helped her make some strong friendships and see extra involvement in the school. She was glad “to not get infected with senioritis” this school year, but of course there was another real health challenge in the air: “COVID impacted each student and I definitely had to adjust work, school and hobbies.”   From coming to school every day, as in normal times, to now what students went through this past year, first just doing school online and then in-person wearing masks — she was in a spot of “figuring how to involve students in a COVID-friendly way” in her ASB role.    She enjoyed her freshmen, sophomore and junior years by trying out new sports for her such as wrestling.    She also took all the

science classes available to her, which proved intriguing enough that Nava is now choosing the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) area to be her likely major when she goes to college.    Nava will be attending Seattle Pacifc University this fall and pursuing nursing. She is excited that the program at SPU does partnerships with Seattle Children’s Hospital. “That is my dream job,” she says, “working alongside kids and amazing doctors.”    She feels ready for the move away from Lynden, where she has lived all of her 18 years, and to step into this next challenge, now that she has overcome the uncertainty she had about high school.    “Learning how to adjust will help with the move to college,” she wrote. “While I did not get a regular senior year, my class tried to do the most together and have fun. I am blessed to have a graduation that I will be walking on June 11 and will look back at this date as the beginning of my next adult academic life. Being patient through my high school experience has gotten me ready for the ‘real world’ parents talk about.”    She appreciates the scholarships she will receive from organizations to help her achieve her goals.    Any parting words of wisdom? “Being patient is the hardest thing to learn because although all four years of high school go faster than you think, you have to be patient and not rush.” — Calvin Bratt

   Ellie Van Hulzen has been a part of soccer at Lynden Christian all four of her years there and cheer teams in her junior and senior years, basketball and track earlier. She sang in chamber choir and participated in elected student government. She plans to attend Dordt University in Iowa to study education and sing in choir there.    “I would like to thank my parents for the constant love, time and support they’ve given me, not only in these last two years during COVID, but throughout my life at LCHS. They have come to countless games and concerts, and were always my number one fans. I also want to thank my teachers who have spent so much time adjusting to the new rules of COVID and always putting their students first. They truly care about all of us, and the relationships I have with them I will cherish forever."    Specific memories will be of cheering at two state championship games and playing at state in soccer.    “I got to make amazing friends through choir, and spent countless hours

(through ASB) making sure things like Valentines Week, the first week of school and Deck the Halls were ready to go for the student body.”   Away from school, Van Hulzen loves to help lead worship at her church, spend time with her family, and go on hikes.    The coronavirus pandemic was 2020-21 reality.    “COVID has been really hard these last two years, but if I’ve learned anything from it, it’s to be thankful for everything I have,” she said. “Even though COVID has taken a lot away from

Serena Buitenbos, Cornerstone Christian ‘I have been taught to prioritize things that are important’

   Serena Buitenbos is one of six seniors in the Class of 2021 from Cornerstone Christian School of Lynden.    Her experience at Cornerstone has been great, she said. “I have been taught to prioritize things that are important.”   Her teachers, besides teaching their subjects, gave her a Christian perspective on life. She learned to think critically while doing her schoolwork with determination and passion, gaining skills she realizes can be valu-

able for her future.    Through the challenge of COVID she learned even more about responsibility. “During quarantine, I startSee Buitenbos on C3

Jonathan Castro, Meridian To remember: Fun things, and conviction about ‘the voice of one person speaking up’

In the words of Jonathan Castro directly:   “Easily the most memorable experiences for me have been thanks to my involvement in our music department.    “I am so thankful that I will be able to look back and think of the family I found in my director, Mr. DeGrace, and my fellow musicians. Above all else, this program has shown me the value in caring for those around me and building a community in which people feel they can belong.    “It also taught me that life has so much potential for fun if you seek it out. I had so many wacky experiences that I can’t imagine finding anywhere else. I don’t think I can ever forget cooking hot dogs over the iron in our hotel room when we went to Disneyland. Truly memorable, to

say the least.    “Outside of the music department, the influence that my social studies teacher, Mr. Lawrence, has had on me cannot be overstated. He has driven me

my senior year, we ended up having a soccer season, an in-person choir concert, and some school events like the Junior-Senior Banquet! Even though it isn’t a totally normal year, these events were extra special to me and my classmates, and I am so thankful I got to be a part of them.    “School has not been the same as it used to be. From having no official ‘breaks’ to walking one way in the halls, we as students have had to adjust to how we approach school. But thanks to the teachers and good friends, we have felt

the support and love even through COVID and all the difficulties that came with it.”   Van Hulzen shares this source of encouragement: “A Bible verse that has stuck with me this year is Zephaniah 3:17. It says, ‘The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing.’ It reminds me that our God is great, and no matter what happens in our lives, he is with us and so proud of who we are in Him. He is our comfort and joy, even in some of the hardest times.”    “I have a lot of good teachers, but ones that have impacted my life most are Mrs. Sloan and Mrs. Whitehead. Mrs. Sloan is my choir teacher, and she has helped me grow not only in music, but as a person. She made music fun and something I knew I wanted to pursue in the future. Mrs. Whitehead also has impacted me in my years at LCHS with her genuine care for her students. She is always praying for us and was one of my biggest role models my senior year when school was hard. I had her first hour all year, and her devotions impacted my life in so many ways.” — Elisa Claassen

to be passionate and vocal about issues facing the world and has made me realize how powerful the voice of one person speaking up can be. I hope never to lose sight of the sense of

virtue and decency he has displayed and made me aspire to meet.    “After high school, I will be attending Western Washington University majoring in psychology, and I eventually plan to obtain my master’s degree and PhD in psychology. I hope to find a career providing diagnoses, conducting psychotherapy and recommending further treatment plans for clients.   “I believe mental health is something that often goes neglected in many aspects of our lives, despite being a factor in the very foundation of our individuality. I intend on remaining active throughout my life in advocating for the destigmatization of mental health treatment and promoting kindness and compassion.    “I realize that as a high school senior, my life is only beginning and the world at large is likely not eager to take advice from what is probably a very naive perspective on life. All I can promise is that I am ready and willing to play my part in making the world just a little more friendly. If I have done that, I will have accomplished my goal.”

Aidan Conner, Nooksack Valley An attitude of adventure: find yourself where you lose yourself   Aidan Conner has been involved in almost every aspect of high school at Nooksack Valley.    He played football for three years and soccer his freshman and senior years; he was in track and field for two years. He joined FFA for his first two years and was in the Environmental Friendly Club all four years. He took the Winter Ride up for Mount Baker snow sports his first three years in high school. He was in ASB his last two years being activities coordinator. He also did drama his junior year and was the main character in that play. He has qualified for the National Honor Society for three years.    “My favorite quote is ‘getting lost is where you find yourself,’” Conner said in explaining his approach to life.   His favorite school memories will be going on a field trip to Pike Place Mar-

ket in Seattle with friends and having parties in calculus class for every “little” holiday such as Cinco de Mayo and St. Patrick’s Day.   Outside of school, Conner loves to play guitar and go on hikes as “much as I can.” He finds time to work for Northwest Flooring.    “COVID hasn’t really affected my life as much as many other people,” he said. “COVID actually gave me the opportunity to do more. I built a sauna during quarantine and during winter when there was nothing better to do I would use it. But COVID, on the other hand, made it so that our school could not have school dances or a normal senior year.”   Conner said he thanks his parents for being “the greatest motivators in my high school career” and also his sisters for teaching him that “you can find adventure in everyday life.” And, he adds, “definitely thanks to my teachers for putting up with me.”    Next year Aidan Conner is going to Western Washington University to study marine biology. — Elisa Claassen

Senior Spotlights Mirella Figueroa, Mount Baker Animal biology may lead to a nursing pursuit   Mirella Figueroa wants to pursue nursing after she graduates from Mount Baker High School, and one of her favorite experiences while attending school in the district directly contributed to that goal.    Teacher Todd Rightmire’s animal biology class was both fun and educational at the same time, and Figueroa learned a lot about biology and other topics she will no doubt use in the future.    No matter that it was on animals; it can relate to human biology.    “We got a lot of handson practice and we went through many labs and it was really educational but super fun at the same time and I gained a lot of experience in that class,” Figueroa said. “I was able to relate it to my nursing.”    Figueroa said being in the Mountaineer band was also a highlight of her time in the district.    “It was really nice,” she said. “We traveled a little bit and I made a lot of nice friends and shared some really fun experiences with everyone.”    Figueroa said the pan-

As a sports team captain he needed to inspire others to ‘keep the morale up’

demic has been a difficult time for her and her class to deal with, of course, but it has also served as a bonding experience.    “We definitely grew more as a class. Our relationships with our teachers grew and we shared some really nice moments despite everything that happened,” she said. “I feel like it helped us depend on each other more, and we were able to, I don’t want to say get more personal, but

we would contact each other outside of classes online and work on things together. I feel like teachers were more there for the students a lot this year. We were able to talk to them literally whenever because we had such limited resources.”   After high school, Figueroa will head to Western Washington University to take classes for two years before entering a nursing program outside of WWU. — Brent Lindquist

Carmen Gallegos, Lynden Academy Finish at WCC For Carmen Gallegos, the end of high school is both scary, and exciting. The senior at Lynden Academy will be pursuing a career in education next year. She’ll be finishing up at Whatcom Community College and then head off to a university afterward. “Not knowing what the future holds is a scary feeling,” Gallegos said. “Going to school is all I know. I’m 18, and for most of my life it’s been school. I’m not sure if I know anything else.” Moving on from high school, she said she’s going to remember the environment Lynden Academy provided her and implement that in her future career as a teacher. Gallegos was involved with theater for three years, which she said helped her a lot. “Doing theater definitely made me break out of my shell and comfort zone,” Gallegos said. “I gained so much confidence I didn’t think I had.” With the pandemic still changing how schooling was approached this past year, Gallegos said she worked to set herself up for the future, and is

  Ethan Brooks has really enjoyed his time at Meridian High School, both in sports and in academics.    He came into the Meridian School District as an eighth grader and found it quite easy to make friends and get involved. In high school he ended up becoming a three-year varsity letterman in football, basketball and baseball and with teams he had the opportunity to reach the state playoffs in all three sports.    His most memorable experience was getting to play on the football team in 2019 with both of his brothers. He terms that “pretty cool, creating memories with them that none of us will forget.”    This 2020-21 year, once sports could be played, Brooks was the captain of both the baseball and basketball teams. He enjoys working with and encouraging the underclassmen of a team, in spite of Meridian being a 1A school in a multi-classification conference, which can be challenging.    “Playing schools two and three times your size on a weekly basis can

sometimes be discouraging. Keeping your head up, and keeping the morale up of the team can be hard, making it more difficult to stay focused and driven,” he wrote. “But in a non-COVID year we get to see the results of all our time in the gym, on the court or field when we finally get to face only 1A schools in districts and state, so to stay the course in a year without a postseason (this year) wasn’t easy.”    Being a team leader for baseball this year was extra challenging. Without having baseball last year because of COVID, the current sophomores were really like freshman and so it was like having two freshman classes coming into the program at once, Brooks said. And because of program size, the team was starting on varsity quite a few sophomores and freshmen. “When we played 3A schools whose whole roster was made up of juniors and seniors, keeping the younger guys encouraged and willing to go through the growing pains, while experiencing some pretty big losses, was more difficult than I expected,” he said.    Brooks is enrolled for the fall at Washington State University where he will study civil engi-

neering. He has received academic scholarships to attend WSU. His plan is to stay focused on his grades, attend as many Coug sports games as possible and participate in intramurals sports “to keep active and feed my competitive spirit.”    To younger students in high school, he encourages them “to not rush through it.    “We all have to grow up and be adults for a really long time, so don’t be in a hurry to make that happen. Make time to get crazy in the student section during a basketball game, or try a new sport, or a new instrument. Work hard and keep your grades up (there are a lot of scholarships out there!), but don’t be afraid to make a mistake or worry too much about what others think of you. Be in charge of your own high school experience.” — Calvin Bratt

Garrett Smith, Mount Baker

ASB officers got creative during COVID closure of inperson school

thankful the pandemic didn’t take away more. “COVID took a lot from a lot of people. So having my senior year be all that was taken away is perfectly OK with me. I worked hard to get my classes behind me so I could make my senior year as easy as possible. I dedicated my senior year to Running Start and get-

ting a job.” Gallegos said she’s looking forward to putting the gifts that high school has given her to the test after graduation. “I’m so excited to see the world through my own eyes instead of the pages of a textbook,” she said. — Hailey Palmer

Brynn Neal, Meridian Deeply grateful, on to Gonzaga    Brynn Neal says that her Meridian High School experience will always be incredibly special to her.    Looking back now as a departing senior, she realizes she was able to go to “an amazing high school where I was pushed academically, yet also able to be part of such a close community through both the volleyball and basketball programs and the yearbook class.”    At Meridian in sports, Neal was a varsity volleyball team captain as both a junior and senior and was voted captain of the Skagit Island Volleyball Academy U18 Club team for the 2021 season.    She feels deeply grateful for her family, coaches, friends and amazing teachers who helped her navigate high school and find her di-

Ethan Brooks, Meridian

rection for life.    “Meridian and the experiences I have gained from my last four years there will always be incredibly important to me and who I have become,” Neal wrote.    She is going to Gonzaga

University in Spokane where she intends to major in either human physiology or pre-health. She hopes then to continue working in the medical field, possibly as a hospital pharmacist. — Calvin Bratt

  Even as the COVID-19 pandemic kept schools closed, Garrett Smith and his fellow Associated Student Body officers at Mount Baker found ways to have some fun.   They did morning announcements via YouTube every day, and they hosted ask-me-anything interviews with teachers and competitions of sorts.    “We were just trying to incorporate the whole school, all the grades up, and a lot of us seniors also did peer mentoring,” he said. “We would go and be part of a freshman class and we’d just participate in their stuff and try to make it fun.”    Smith started in the Mount Baker School District all the way back in kindergarten at Acme Elementary. Looking back at his time in the district, Smith can see now that his teachers were always a big highlight, and especially so when it came to mak-

ing the best of a less-thanideal situation during the pandemic.    “It’s always fun, and the teachers are there and they cared about you,” he said. “They wanted you to succeed, and to see you succeed after school, too.”    In addition to ASB, Smith spent time playing football and basketball with the Mountaineers.    After he graduates, Smith plans to attend Montana State University in Bozeman where he may pursue a double major thanks to the school’s policy regarding class

credits.    “You pay for the 12 credits that you’re required to have in a year of schooling, then you can take it however many credits you want over that for free,” he said. “I might do a dual major.”    Smith said he is interested in engineering, but having grown up on a farm, he may want to take over his family’s farm eventually. He said he might pursue ag business or farm and ranch management and mix that with engineering. — Brent Lindquist

ed to understand the value of maturity and how you respond to those things, (and) the things you are able to control.”    Serena has been the class valedictorian, and all through high school she was involved on the student leadership STAMP team. She enjoyed playing on the soccer, volleyball and basketball teams of Cornerstone Christian.    In the fall, she plans to attend Whatcom Community College to pursue the

physical therapy assistant program.    Allowed to share any words she would have as a graduating senior at this point in her life, Buitenbos wrote: “Seek empathy, patience, humility and discipline. Seek the internal, rather than the external. How you speak, how you think, how you reason (are primary). Speak with kindness, think with purity, and reason like the adults that (we) all now are. And in everything that you do, may God be glorified.” — Calvin Bratt
