Vocational Service Chair Audrey Dahlgren introduced the Student of the Year honorees and their parents and school officials.

Kim Gill, Counselor at Rancho Del Mar High School in Rolling Hills, introduced student of the year Sarah Ivna Skunca and her mother. (Rancho Del Mar has the same graduation requirements as the other 2 high schools in Palos Verdes. However, it is not bound by traditional high school schedules, to allow for early graduation, independent studies, and/or for students with financial or situational/family problems to proceed at their own pace.)

Sarah transferred from Palos Verdes Peninsula High School and has gotten all A’s. She is interested in arts and cosmetology. She plans to attend Los Angeles Harbor College and then transfer to CSU Long Beach for business studies.

Dave Tomblin, Business Faculty at Marymount and Rotaract Faculty Advisor (and member of LA5 Rotary Club and Assistant Governor for Club Service) introduced student of the year Dominique Alvarez and her parents. Sarah is majoring in Media Studies (Broadcasting and Journalism) at Marymount California University and is active in Rotaract. Among her many service activities have been fundraising for PolioPlus, collecting baby supplies for service families at Camp Pendleton, Boys and Girls Club of San Pedro, nursing home service, and volunteer work projects.
