At this Wednesday's meeting, we recognized two incredible students.  

Damon Cottle

The theme for our Student of the Month for February is "Excellence in Fine Arts."  Our Student of the Month from Henry M. Jackson High School is Damon Cottle. 
Damon is a senior at Henry M. Jackson High School.  He is passionate about art as a legitimate form of communication and expression.  Of his nine UW & Advanced Placement courses, two have been in AP Art.  His current portfolio is centered on expanding the inclusion of black characters in digital fantasy games.  Damon is well liked by his classmates and offers his expertise freely to others.  He truly embodies the characteristics of the Jackson Way of Pride, Excellence, and Character.
