Riley Quincy
SELAH HS

Riley Quincy has participated in football, basketball and baseball at Selah High School, accumulating eight varsity letters and numerous accolades for his talents and determination.

Quincy describes his most memorable accomplishment as being a member of the 2A Baseball State Championship team as a junior. Not only did Quincy start for his team, he earned all-league honors for his efforts.  The 2016 Championship marked a moment of great importance for the team captain on an individual level, but also for the school and community, as it was the first baseball title in Selah history.

Quincy was also a three-time varsity letter winner for the Vikings on the basketball court, serving as a team captain during a memorable postseason run to the 2017 2A Hardwood Classic Championship where they took second place overall. He was named to the all-league basketball team during his senior season, making him a three-sport all league athlete after earning the honor for football during his junior season.

In addition to his athletic achievements, he holds a 3.97 GPA while challenging himself with AP and honors courses. Quincy was elected to the role of ASB Senior Class President, a position he says made him a better leader and opened his eyes to the importance of encouraging involvement in the school and community. His service earned him the title of the top charity fundraiser after organizing a community dodgeball tournament which raised more than $2,500.

Quincy will attend the University of Arizona upon graduation. He has shown interest in pursuing a career in either physical therapy or athletic training to merge his strength of sports and science. However, as the son of two teachers, Quincy has not ruled out a career in education.

 
 
Emma Clark
SEHOME HS

Emma Clark is a standout athlete in basketball, cross country, track and field and orchestra for a total of 11 varsity letters at Sehome. Clark has been a well-rounded student and athlete while also shining on the biggest stage, helping the Mariners to second- and third-place finishes at the State Cross Country Championships in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Clark joined the cross country team as a junior after playing volleyball during her freshman and sophomore seasons. She was able to make the transition, and pushed through a long-term IT band injury to finish 38th at the State Cross Country meet both as a junior and a senior.

Clark was also a member of the Mariners’ basketball team which advanced to a Regional appearance in 2015.A member of her school’s orchestra, Clark has received a score of “excellent” all four years at the Regional Solo and Ensemble Orchestra Competition. Here coaches and teachers have described her as determined, competitive and passionate, which showed when she was awarded the Sehome Female Sportsmanship Athlete of the year for 2016-17.

In the classroom, the Bellingham native holds a 4.0 GPA while being named an AP Scholar with Distinction and earning a top score of “5” on four different AP tests. Clark was the President of the National Hispanic Honor Society as a senior after receiving a seal of bi-literacy for Spanish in 2016. Outside of the classroom, she has been generous with her time and been heavily involved in the community. Serving as a volunteer assistant in a second grade classroom, Clark already has experience teaching, where she has reaffirmed her desired career path.

Clark intends to put her bilingual talents to use by teaching English as a second language to children around the world. She will attend Stanford University next fall to pursue a degree in education, and hopes to eventually graduate with a Master’s degree in elementary education.
