RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA is pleased to announce Endeavor Middle School’s Jorge Cruz and Central Kitsap Middle School’s Allison Morley as the "Give Me 5" Star Students of the Month.
The monthly campaign is dedicated to highlighting two middle school students that demonstrate the core principles of the program; honor, sportsmanship, courage, respect, and citizenship.
Cruz is an eighth grader at Endeavor Middle School in Moses Lake. Jorge is active in football, wrestling and basketball. Jorge was nominated by his Athletic Director, Clint Scriven, for being a role model in the classroom and as a student-athlete.
In addition to his success on the field, Jorge is the current ASB president. Head football coach, James Barnett, stated that Jorge has been a “consistent on-and-off the field student-athlete leader for two football seasons,” and that “his consistent leadership, positive attitude, and hard work earned him the title of Practice Captain.”
Morley is an eighth grader at Central Kitsap Middle School in Silverdale. Allison is active in volleyball, basketball and choir. Allison was nominated by her volleyball coach, Kim Carroll, for her sportsmanship, honor and courage in both athletics and at the school. Allison possesses a great positive and “bubbly” attitude and is always willing to help her fellow teammates and classmates. In addition to her activities, Allison is a "Straight A" student, taking honors classes.
The students will be featured on the Activities Matter website.
