Applause - September 24, 2012

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Woodinville Montessori alumni, Overlake senior and Life Scout Tristen Wastell launched his Eagle Project this summer, installing a bench and a path at Woodinville Montessori School to provide a safe way for students to travel from the main building to the new two-story building at the North Creek campus in Bothell. Tristen joined scouting in first grade as a member of Pack 552 and crossed over to Boy Scout Troop 909 in March 2006. The project took the efforts of over 17 volunteers and two work parties to remove 47 azaleas, clear and level a 4-foot by 90-foot area for the path, construct and secure wood edging, and finally lay and compact four yards of crushed rock. Thanks to materials donations from Lowes and McLendons, the bench will be built and installed in early September.

Christy Dannheim, a resident of Woodinville, was one of the graduates during the 2012 summer commencement ceremonies at Texas State University-San Marcos. Dannheim received a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
