Graduates

Gabrielle Hall, a recipient of the Greater Woodinville Chamber of Commerce Scholarship, recently graduated from Howard University with highest distinction and was also inducted into the nation’s oldest academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa.

Hall was a member of the Woodinville High School Class of 2013. In recognition of her academic achievements, Howard designated Hall a Summa Cum Laude graduate during commencement ceremonies. “I really worked and prayed a lot to graduate with highest honors,” said Hall. “I realized freshman year that WHS prepared me well for college when a professor wrote me a note saying my work was at the level of a PhD candidate.”

In addition to class, Hall made time to intern in the office of Sen. Patty Murray, conduct research in Ghana, take advanced Spanish in Cuba and Barcelona, and perform at the White House for President Barack Obama as a member of the Howard Gospel Choir.

In the Fall, Hall will teach AP History in Virginia and plans to eventually pursue a doctorate in education.

  • Written by City of Woodinville Police Department

SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE – NE 202 PL
Deputies were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle call shortly after 1:00 a.m. The vehicle was occupied by two males, who seemed startled when the deputy approached. The males appeared to be “frantically adjusting items on their laps”. One of the males said that they were there to meet with someone in a car parked in front of them. Deputies found a male and female “hiding” in a second car. Everyone had conflicting stories about what they were doing in this neighborhood.
 
CRIMINAL WARRANT, MISDEMEANOR – 144TH AVE NE
Deputies responded to investigate a report of a suspicious occupied vehicle. When the deputy approached the van, he saw a male slumped over the wheel. The deputy had to knock on the window several times to wake the driver. The male was jitter, bouncing up and down, swaying his head from side to side and his eyes were darting all around. The male also had sores on his face and hands all of this was consistent with intravenous drug use. The male advised he was currently on Methadone and does have a Heroin addiction. Inside the van was a pair of gloves, a headlamp and a screwdriver. The driver was arrested without incident on an outstanding warrant out of Marysville. The van was impounded for safekeeping.
 
LARCENY, 139TH AVE NE
Deputies were called to a business because employees recognized a male inside the store that they thought was associated for several thefts at businesses like theirs. As one of the deputies walked into the business the male in question was walking out. The deputy explained why he was there and asked the male for his name. Initially, the male provided a false name. Ultimately, the male’s identity was obtained, stolen property was recovered off his person and it was confirmed that Kirkland PD was in fact interested in this person for numerous thefts in their city. The male was turned over to Kirkland PD for investigation purposes.
