Rotary Scholar of the Month for December: Hannah Lintala

Hannah Lintala was selected as the Camas Washougal Rotary Scholar of the Month for December 2014.  Hannah is a sophomore at Washougal High School and has a GPA of 3.675.  Hillary Marshall, WHS Teacher Librarian, said that “Hannah is a determined young woman. She is a fantastic runner and encouraging to other teammates who are less talented.  She also volunteered last year with the WHS Stride and encouraged me in my running efforts!”  Kathy Scobba, Hanna’s Computer Applications teacher, adds that Hannah “works diligently to not only learn the skills but understand the importance of technology to further her academic career” and that “she strives for perfection and when does not obtain it, she will try again.”

Scott Boothby, Hannah’s freshman World Geography teacher, describes Hannah as “always willing to go above and beyond in class” and also noted that “It wasn't just her work ethic that made her stand out. The smile she wore each day and the care she showed for everyone made her class one of the memorable ones.”  Hannah’s Spanish teacher, Rochelle Aiton, says that “Hannah is a delightful student.  She comes into class with a smile and an eagerness to learn.  It's not always easy for her but, because of her hard work and determination, she is successful.  She is also an artist and has designed this year's Spanish club sweatshirt.  I'm happy to have Hannah in class!”

Hanna lives with her parents Earl and Deanna Swigert.  Congratulations Hannah!
