The two seniors, from Marysville Getchell High Schools International School of Communications, were given the award by the local Marysville Soroptimist and Kiwanis clubs, which recognize a boy and girl each month.

"I have always loved kids. Ever since the nursing camp, nothing but nursing has been my focus," Mielke wrote.
