Each month of the school year for almost 20 years, the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Club has been recognizing a deserving Scriber Lake High School senior. They are celebrated for overcoming serious obstacles and turning their lives around.
The Scriber Lake school staff selects a student each month of the school year and the Daybreakers invite him or her to their weekly breakfast meeting along with their favorite teacher and a parent. The student tells the Rotarians about themselves and their hopes for their future; the teacher and parent share their pride as well. The honoree is awarded a framed certificate and other mementos of the occasion.
According to chair James Blossey the students universally see the Hidden Winner recognition as a highlight of their high school career. “It also often makes it onto the winner’s resume for college, trade school or job search,” he said.
