Shoreline Rotary Awards Two King’s Students

This past Wednesday, the Shoreline Rotary recognized two students from King’s High School as Students of the Month for their academic performance, dedication to the community through service, and leadership among their peers.

Alec Hays and Dominique Kirton were the two seniors awarded this honor based off their demonstration of hard work and dedication in the classroom and their extracurricular activities.

Dominique and Alec’s parents, Heather and Doug Kirton and Corey and Mia Hays, were in attendance at the awards ceremony along with High School principal, Bob Ruhlman.

“Alec has a deep care for others,” said Mr. Ruhlman. “Whatever he is doing he cares for people in the process. He loves Jesus. His passion is the arts where he thrives in photography, improv acting and film. Alec helped start the film club at King’s. He is also in student leadership at Bethany Community Church and has served on the board of the Holocaust Center in Seattle.”

“Dominique is loved by all who know her,” said Mr. Ruhlman. “She is a quiet but influential young woman. She cares deeply for others, seeks opportunities to serve and she loves the Lord. She serves on the youth leadership team of the Shoreline Sports Foundation, she is co-editor of the Sceptre King’s yearbook, and she actively supports missions work at an orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. Dominique was selected by her coaches and teammates to be captain of her volleyball and basketball teams at King’s. She is “all in” with her high school experience, making every moment count in her time at KHS!”

Congratulations to Alec and Dominique! We as a school community are proud of the way our students uphold themselves in and out of the classroom.
