Dragons Excel at Community Service

October 05, 2020

SGS Upper School students Alex and Gabe Gustafson made short educational videos for Spokane County 4-H this summer to help the program build community.  Alex produced the content (making guacamole, making a basil BLT, how to make an herb garden, etc.) and planned the demonstration.  Gabe would film, place the music and edit the content.  You can view their How to Make Guacamole video on YouTube.

Alex also serves as director of the Spokane Interstate Youth advisory's teen board, and she is helping organize a Washington State Conference for Equity for teens and adult leaders.  Gabe is building a Minecraft Server with the local 4-H as a place to build community for 4-H teens across Spokane County.  They hope to expand statewide by the end of the year if all goes well.

Two other SGS students serve on the Ronald McDonald House Charities teen board.  Audrey Harrill is a returning member of the RMHC teen board, while John Nowland begins his service on the board this fall.  Board members are ambassadors within their schools and communities, and fill critical volunteer roles at RMHC fundraising events.  Go Dragons!
