MARYSVILLE – Two seniors at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, Macy Scallan and Jeffery Richner, have been named Students of the Month by the Marysville Soroptimist and Kiwanis clubs.

Scallan likes to “help people” and has been very involved in community service, just like the clubs that honored her. She wants to become a teacher.

For three years she has been a “big buddy” at Kellogg-Marsh, where she went to grade school. Once a week she goes there to help her buddy to be a role model with homework, to play or just to talk. She tutors once a week as part of the National Honor Society.

For four years she has been a camp counselor, also for K-M. She referees volleyball games at her old middle school. She also helped children with disabilities at an event for Boeing.

Scallan is very involved in school. She has been a cheerleader for three years and is captain this year. She has been involved ASB as freshman class president, elections commissioner as a sophomore and was an ambassador as a junior. She played varsity volleyball as a freshman, then switched to club volleyball. She also went to state as a freshman for DECA. More recently, she helped plan and organize the biggest leadership conference at M-P as part of Interhigh.

For her senior project, Scallan is planning a museum-type room at M-P. It would tell the history of Marysville schools. Part of the project will include an area where the Class of 2019 and those that follow will be able to add something to a historic wall. Scallan would train underclassmen on how to do that when she graduates.

Jeffery Richner said he has taken a wide variety of classes in high school to figure out what he wants to do for a career. He is strong in math so right now he is leading toward becoming a solar engineer. “I care a lot about the environment,” he said.

Richner plans to get his associate’s degree at Everett Community College before heading to a four-year school.

He plays the flute in band and has taken Spanish for three years.

Richner is very involved in track and cross country, for which he was captain this year. In both sports he has received awards as a role model and leader.

A distance runner, he hopes to get an athletic scholarship. He said he is following in his father’s footsteps. His dad trains so much he has actually ran 100-mile events.

For community service, Richner has helped with a food drive, but he hopes to do much more.
