MARYSVILLE – Madeline Grandbois and Nicholas Faber of Marysville Getchell have been named the October Students of the Month by the Marysville Kiwanis and Soroptimist clubs.

Grandbois is a standout athlete for the girls basketball, soccer and track teams. And the one year she was injured and couldn’t play soccer she turned out for swimming and qualified for districts.

She plans to play basketball at Central Washington and eventually become a lawyer to help nonprofits. Grandbois already is involved in community service. She especially enjoys volunteering with the Little Chargers Basketball Camp. After tearing an ACL she donated 330 hours as manager of the school’s track team. The past year she has volunteered at the Everett Animal Shelter.

In basketball, she was an honorable mention her freshman year and All-Wesco first team her junior year. In soccer, she plays center-back and sometimes goalie. In track she has the rare talent of being a speedster on the 4 by 100 and 4 by 200 relay teams, and also being a standout in shot put, with a personal best of 43 feet. She was all-league in all three events last year, and placed 11th at state in the shot.

She’s also been a member of the National Honor Society the past 1 1/2 years.

Faber also excels in all phases of high school. He hopes to attend the University of Washington and major in business communications. He’s also thinking of going into the medical field.

Faber has a 4.0 grade point average as a Running Start student at Everett Community College. He has a 3.924 gpa at MG. He will gets his two-year college degree and high school diploma next spring. He also is on the National Honor Society and has played soccer and basketball for three years. It was through his basketball coach that he helped out at the food bank, and he continues to do that, especially in summers. When he broke his foot he helped the basketball team as a manager. He’s also helped with youth basketball camps and the Twilight Cross Country meet.

He has also volunteered with Special Olympics and by coaching YMCA youth soccer. He’s helped with the concession stand and as a scorekeeper at youth basketball games. Other volunteer work includes: Lynnwood’s city fair, building a fence for the Eagle Ridge Community Garden, and playing with puppies and cleaning at the Everett Animal Shelter.
