EMS teacher, Karl Karkainen has been named the 2015-2016 Washington State Middle Level Leadership Advisor of the Year by the Association of Washington Student Leaders!

Some students describe Mr. Karkainen as kind, intelligent, compassionate and very accepting, and Mr. Karkainen said, “Anyone can stand up and lead, anyone can step back and serve, and leadership is a mix between those things.”

We hope you will take the time to watch this short video about Mr. Karkainen:
