Austin Reaker William Velasco 12 Being Family It was hard to choose one pillar as Will truly exemplifies all 4 pillars and what it means to be a Mariner. The reason I choose Being Family is because Will is always looking out for others by cooperating and empathizing with all of the students in my 7th period class. He is more than an IWE, and is even more than a TA. He has gone above and beyond to build relationships with each of the students in my class, so then they feel comfortable asking him questions when they are confused. He will ask questions before the class starts so he knows what the students are doing and what they might need more support on. He also helps keep the room and labs organized. I couldn't be more appreciative for all of the help that Will has put in. Thank you to him for exemplifying what it means to be a Mariner.
Nichole McGowan Sherry Liu 10 Being Family Sherry not only is one of the most organized student leaders I've ever had, she's also one of the kindest students I've had. She is a role model to other students and someone I can trust to get the job done. I appreciate her empathy for others and her choice to be an upstander in difficult situations. I'm grateful to have her in student government.
