Windward High School Senior Jesus Morales was honored as Ferndale Kiwanis January Student of the Month.
This year, Jesus serves as ASB Pesident of Windward High. Also, since his freshman year he has worked with Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) doing water quality testing. The testing helps find the causes of low salmon population in our streams and develop a plan to make streams healthier. This summer he worked as in intern, along side students from Seoul Korea, at Western Washington University. This past fall, he helped to create and lead a summit about teen dating violence prevention. Eleven local schools attended and about 150 high school students attended the summit called “Our Gender Revolution.”
Jesus notes the most influential person in his life is little sister Georgia. “She looks to me as her strong big brother. I need to be a role model for her and create a path for her to follow. I want her to be the best and not go through what I experienced and the troubles I have faced. I want her to be strong, driven, independent and confident. I strive to be better for her,” Jesus said.
Currently, Jesus is receiving “A” grades in all school subjects. Following high school, Jesus hopes to attend Northwest Indian College to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in engineering. Then he would like to pursue a Master’s Degree in zoology. After college, he would like to join the Peace Corps or the U.S. Army to become an Army Ranger.
Congratulations, Jesus! We are proud of you and what you have accomplished!
