Refugee to graduate: New culture part of LC senior’s education

She may be small in stature, but Ange Nemerimana’s high-wattage smile and colorful African garb make her difficult to miss in the halls of Lewis and Clark High School. Born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nemerimana spent her formative years in a refugee camp in Tanzania. LC adviser Marty Frazier said, “She was placed with her grandmother at birth because her mother didn’t feel like she could care for her.”

Hard-working EV senior has a plan for success

Jake Foust is a diamond in the rough. That’s how his teachers describe the East Valley High School senior; he’s not a typical high school student, he’s rare. Unlike most seniors planning their future, Foust isn’t heading to college after graduation. He already knows what he’s doing with his life. Instead of sitting in a classroom, working toward a four-year degree, Foust will be working for himself in his own firewood cutting business.

CV senior beats near-death experiences

Central Valley High School senior Gaven Deyarmin looks like any other teenage boy walking through the halls wearing shorts, a T-shirt and a bulging backpack – that is, until you see the scars on his legs. The scars are from what Deyarmin calls his first near-death experience. It was the summer before seventh grade and he was hiking near Lake Roosevelt with his family when he fell about 10 feet off a cliff. “A whole bunch of rocks came down on top of me,” he said. Given the remote location, help was a long time coming. He broke his clavicle and femur and has a long scar down his thigh where his femur was repaired.

St. George’s Gimbel leads pack with her dedication

It’s hard to keep up with Hope Gimbel. From the time she gets up she’s running. She runs before school and, during cross country and track season, after school as well. “It’s a good way to get out some stress. I like the long distance,” she said, though the double workouts are also indicative of her approach to life.

Spokane Valley High student flourished in welcoming community

Cassie Hundeby wasn’t sure Spokane Valley High School was big enough when she first saw it midway through her sophomore hear. “I started high school on the other side of the state at a very big school, Curtis High School,” she said. “It’s a huge school. When I got to Spokane Valley High School and looked at it, I remember thinking, ‘Is that all there is? That can’t be big enough.’ ”
