Marysville Getchell Bio-Med Academy students Jamie Phung and Ben Granger were honored for their work in the community and in their school.

Jamie and Ben are March's Students of the Month, an award given out by the Marysville Kiwanis and Soroptimist clubs.

Jamie Phung is involved in a number of activities at her school and in her community.

She has been a member of the Marysville Getchell Key Club, an offshoot of the Marysville Kiwanis Club, since 2014.

Currently she is the president and was vice-president the previous year.

Since two years ago she has helped increase its members from 43 to 67 by encouraging membership and establishing a better meeting schedule for students.

As part of the Key Club she has helped lead fundraising efforts, including to create a donation effort which raised money for the Seattle Children's Hospital.

Key Club members also help with the many local events that the Kiwanis Club sponsors, including the Marysville Touch-A-Truck, the Fishing Derby pancake breakfast, the Valentines Father & Daughter Dance and movie nights at Jennings Park.

Jamie also provided 175 hours of volunteer service to the Marysville Food Bank.

Outside of the Key Club Jamie is also a part of the Getchell National Honor Society and has been a junior varsity member of the school's tennis team in 2016 and track team in 2015.

At her church she has been part of the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement since 2007 and has been part of the Vietnamese Language School and Vietnamese Bible School there.

Her volunteer service has been recognized many times in the past, with the Marysville Food Bank Volunteer of the Month award, the President's Volunteer Service Award (gold level), finishing first place in community service at Bio-Med Academy and receiving a United Way of Snohomish County Varsity Letter in Community Service.

Ben Granger was recognized for his involvement in sports and the community.

He is one of Getchell's soccer stars and has been a varsity starter for the team since 2015.

Last year he was named to the All Wesco First Team. In 2016 he was All Wesco Second Team and in 2015 he received an All Wesco honorable mention as well.

In addition to playing for Getchell's soccer squad, Ben has played on the Snohomish United A team and in the Rush Select Soccer league.

He has also played in the Snohomish Lacrosse league as well.

Ben currently maintains a 3.87 GPA and has been included on the Presidential Honor Roll for all semesters at his school.

He has been involved in student government since his sophomore year, when he was a class cabinet member.
