Indian Valley Record Wednesday, June 29, 2011 11A E)istin00uished Mona Hill Staff Writer Recently selected as the Distinguished Young Woman of Quincy, Plumas Charter School (PCS) senior Sarah Rhodes advances to the state competition, held July 22 - 31 in Bakersfield. At stake is a full scholar- ship to Alabama's Auburn University, Rhodes' school of choice after graduation next year. Formerly known as Junior Miss, the scholarship compe- tition emphasizes an individ- ual entrant's overall strengths in the areas of scholastics, fitness, self-ex- pression and talent. In addition, judges will in- terview Rhodes to assess her values, perceptions, clarity of expression and world citizen- ship to determine 25 percent of the total score. Rhodes, a soprano, will per- form a 90-second selection from "The Dark Waltz" by Hayley Westenra for the talent portion of the competition. "She is quite a distin- guished young woman," said PCS Director of Academics Taletha Washburn. Wash- burn explained that Rhodes, who holds a 3.76 GPA, has a strong drive to meet her per- sonal expectations, planning and executing those plans to achieve her goals. Washburn said Rhodes was the driving force behind the charter school's first-ever prom. Because the local area does not have a Distinguished Young Woman chapter, Rhodes is responsible to raise the funds to participate. Judges at the regional level of this national program were impressed enough with Rhodes to donate $100 toward the cost of the state competition. In addition to the $450 she needs to raise by July 10 for room and board expenses Plumas Charter School senior Sarah Rhodes recently won the Distinguished Young Woman of Quincy title.

In 2010, Indian Valley's Nizhoni O'Connell won a full scholar- ship to Harvard University. Recently, PCS student Corrine Cook, daughter of school district trustee Bret Cook, won Feather River Col- lege's Math Rising Star award competing against 60 college- level math students.

Kate West Chester Editor The Seneca Hospital Auxiliary hosted its 33rd annual installation of offi- cers and luncheon Wednes- day, June 8, at the Lake A1- manor Elks Lodge in Old Town Chester. Featuring a "Gift of Time" theme, the affair was planned by committee mem- bers Judy Martin, Sharon Weslar and Fran Wilkins. Outgoing two-term presi- dent Pat Roarty opened the business part of the meeting and spoke about the organi- zation's many accomplish- ments, among them finan- cial contributions to the Seneca Healthcare District. She said $445,566 had been raised and donated over the past 33 years. "The Auxiliary has raised over $90,000 in the last four years alone," Roarty said. This year the Seneca Hospital Auxiliary donated $17.191 dollars for the p.urchase of a Welch Allyn vitals monitor for the operating room, a Fisher Cy- tocentrifuge Unit for the lab- oratory, and an i-STAT plus charger/data link, also for the lab. Newly installed officers for fiscal year 2011-12 are Dana Seandel, president; Kaye Swanson, vice presi- dent; Pat Roarty, secretary; and Linda Yaap, treasurer. Directors for the 2011-12 term are Eileen Kennelly, Fran Wilkins and Toddy Cutler. Roarty received a special thank-you gift. Vice presi- dent Peggy Dick, secretary Linda Yaap and treasurer Mary Craig were also recog- nized for their service. Volunteer coordinator Toddy Cutler offered heart- felt recognitions to Claudine Larrabee and Bey Masson for their 25 years of consecu- tive service to the Seneca Auxiliary. She also spoke of the dedi- cation of both women and the high standards they set for their peers. "We have close to 55 in- hospital volunteers. Some of you work many times in a month others only once or twice. We appreciate and value all of you. As the Aux- iliary year ended May 31, you all had racked up 507 hours in the hospital," Cut- ler said. Continuing, she said when an auxiliary member has been an in-hospital volun- teer for approximately one year, he or she is eligible for a volunteer recognition pin. Volunteers receiving pins this year were Nancy Foote, Irene Burkey, Karen Wil- son, Susan Oehler and Jude Morse. Cutler said her job was made easier with the assis- tance of three volunteer scheduling chairwomen: Bonnie Sloan, linen team; Marge Edwards, lobby desk; and Eileen Kennelly, Seneca Long Term Care Facility bingo. Among the honored guests were Seneca Healthcare Dis- trict Chief Executive Officer Doug Self, Chief Nursing Officer Linda Wagner and Seneca Long Term Care Director of Nurses Terri Smith.
