Classification: 4A

Hello, this is Hector Ruiz from Everett, WA, reporting to the WIAA.

I am a Latino student and I am a junior at Mariner High School, and I couldn’t imagine living my high school experience anywhere else. Mariner is a 4A school located in the North-West of the state, but what is special about this school is not just its size, but the amount of diversity that the school exposes from the Everett community. Here we are like family and our mascot is the killer whale, the largest and most dangerous predator of the sea; that’s why around here we are called the marauders.

As a marauder I am involved in sports all year round starting with football season; for some, it might only be in the fall, but for me is hard work all year round since I wish to keep playing the game at the next level. College football is a dream and a wish for me because if I work hard enough, I will not only be able to do one of the things I love to do more than anything but also continue my education while doing it. When I’m not on the field I like to swim and dive in the winter, and currently track in the spring where I am hoping to make it to the state meet throwing the discus.

(Number 62)

Not only do I participate in sports at Mariner, but I am also part of philosophy club, the LSU (Latino Student Union), and M&M (Mentors & Mediators) connections program in the mediation branch, as well as part of the Band program and the drum line. Now I am part and a leader of a very successful choir, jazz choir, and show choir programs that have blossomed in the last few years; our most recent achievement was to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

I’ve had a very successful high school career so far and I expect my senior year to be nothing less from amazing!
