Decatur student participates in Holocaust project
Mirror staff reports:
Decatur High School junior Stephanie Stanek was selected to participate in the Robert B. Sturm Youth Leadership Mission, one of 12 winners chosen from the Puget Sound area.
Students will take a three-and-a-half day trip to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., in March. The goal is to connect the lessons of the Holocaust to contemporary issues and offer modern day examples and role models for standing up against bigotry.
Participants will be ambassadors, carrying the lessons they learn on the mission back to their own schools and to other teens throughout the year.
Stanek has a 4.0 GPA, is Decatur’s junior class secretary/treasurer, DECA vice president, and is a member of the Federal Way Youth Commission. She also has two jobs, is on the Decatur tennis team, is a regular blood donor and volunteers for numerous causes.
