Kenmore student competes with YES

Kenmore resident Anand Kaul has been chosen to compete for a $50,000 college scholarship at the 2007-08 Young Epidemiology Scholars (YES) Competition sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and administered by the College Board.

Kaul is among 60 high-school juniors and seniors who will receive a $2,000 scholarship and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. from April 4-7 to present their research to nationally recognized epidemiologists and teachers and compete for college scholarships of up to $50,000. More than 550 high-school students from across the nation entered the competition, which is designed to spur students’ interest in the field of epidemiology, which explores patterns of disease, illness and injury with the goal of developing methods for prevention, control and treatment.

Northshore taxpayers will save money

The Northshore School Board’s has decided to refund $13.6 million in outstanding bonds originally issued in 1998. The resulting actual dollar savings, which amount to $585,000, will not increase district revenues but will lower taxes. The board approved the action at its March 25 meeting. The district refinanced its bonds to take advantage of lower interest rates.

The Northshore School District is accepting nominations for people in the district community who have gone above and beyond in helping special-needs students connect, contribute and experience success. The district will give awards in eight categories: General Education Teachers, Administrators, Special Education Teachers, Support Staff, Teams/Schools, Parent Volunteers, Community Volunteers and Students.

Nominations will be accepted until April 21, and can be sent by e-mail to nsdsepac@yahoo.com or by mail to: SEPAC, c/o Laura Hamilton, Northshore Special Education Dept., 3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell, WA 98021-8972. Forms may also be found on the district Web site: www.sepacnsd.org.
