Two Getchell students honored for their community activism

December's Students of the Month are Getchell students Jordon Silcox and Katie Stordahl.


Two Marysville Getchell students, Jordon Silcox and Katie Stordahl, have been honored as December's Students of the Month by the Kiwanis and Soroptimist clubs of Marysville.

Katie is a senior at Marysville Getchell School for the Entrepreneur and maintains a 3.903 GPA.

She hopes to attend a four-year university and study business management or business hospitality.

"One day I would like to own my own business and become an event planner or be high up in a business where I can plan major events. That is my passion and I would like to sponsor and put on events that are charity based and would make a different for people that need it," she wrote.

Katie has already helped coordinate and organize events like the Make-a-Wish Home Run Derby fundraiser in 2012 and the annual Getchell/Pilchuck auction.

In her community she helps in other ways, including collecting food for the Marysville Food Bank, taking part in the School for the Entrepreneur mentor program, cleaning up the school after football games and making sure the campus gets properly weeded.

Katie has been part of the Getchell track and field team and the girls' basketball team. This year she is captain of the basketball team as well.

She has taken home two Getchell Varsity Athletic Awards and a Wesco All Academic Award.

At her school she has helped lead the campus as the current ASB vice-president, the former vice-president of the junior class and the president of the Flowart Club.

She is also a member of FBLA, DECA and the National Honor Society.

Jordon Silcox is also a senior at Marysville Getchell who puts a lot of his time into helping his community.

He has helped with the Kiwanis Club pancake breakfast, put more than 60 hours toward helping the Marysville Food Bank, more than 100 hours into Marysville Parks and more than 55 hours as a crew hand for "Legally Blonde," a musical play put on by Marysville Getchell and Marysville-Pilchuck High Schools.

While helping the community he is also part of the Goodwill Youth Aerospace program and his course-load includes Honors Physics and AP Language Art.

He plays on the Getchell football team and is part of the local Key Club, a service club for youth.

He hopes to go to EvCC's technical design program and get a job at an aerospace company to further his training and education. His eventual goal is to become an aerospace engineer.
