Marysville Getchell High School students Tina Do and Walker Braillard were recognized for the work they do at their schools.
The two Getchell seniors were given the February Students of the Month award presented by the Marysville Kiwanis and Soroptimist clubs, who honor a boy and a girl each month for their volunteer service and involvement in their school.
Tina Do has a 4.0 weighted GPA and plans to attend Western Washington University next year.
She will be the first generation in her family to attend college and is the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants.
For her entire high school career Tina has been a part of the ASB leadership at her school.
During her freshman year she was class president, and then served a year as secretary, a year as vice-president and is currently the ASB president.
As the leader of the school’s student body she helps other leadership students organize and communicates with the student population about events going on at school.
Since 2018 she has been a member of the school’s Key Club, a service-oriented club that is the youth branch of the Marysville Rotary.
She was named the Outstanding Junior Member last year.
Tina also received a Marysville Rotary Club Community Service Recognition Award.
At St. Mary’s Catholic Church she has been an altar server since 2014, including being head altar server since 2015, where she leads and works with about 30 servers.
Academically she is also interested in photography and videography and runs her own YouTube channel.
Walker Braillard has been involved in student leadership at Getchell for many years as well.
Even before officially being part of the ASB there he had put in many hours in the 2017-18 school year helping putting on school events with them.
In his junior year he took over the role of ASB Technician.
This year he has put in more than 75 hours to help support the events that go on at the school.
For the past four years he has also been a part of Getchell’s tennis team.
Walker won the Most Inspirational award last year and also made it to sub-districts at the end of last season.
Since 2017 he has also been the Getchell girls tennis manager, and plans to return for a third year as manager this spring.
“The team in the last two years has had over 30 girls, proving to be a difficult but incredibly fun learning experience,” he wrote.
He also spent one and a half years as part of the FBLA Club at the school.
During four car washes Walker and his peers helped raise more than $700 for the club, and he participated in the 2016 Winter Bazaar.
He placed second in parliamentary procedures, both at the regional conference and the state conference.
