Senior Bruce Pineda is River Ridge’s recipient of the ALTRUSA organization’s Vocational Recognition Award, receiving a $700 check during an awards dinner at Indian Summer Country Club on April 24, 2018. ALTRUSA is a worldwide service organization that, among many projects, rewards hardworking, dedicated, and conscientious students. The Olympia chapter makes cash awards to each high school in the region on a biennial basis. In his nomination, Mr. Brewer said of Bruce, ‘his behavior and attendance in the classroom are exceptional and he is definitely self-disciplined, responsible, and a self-starter.’ Congratulations, Bruce!
Over Spring Break ten students attended the FBLA State Conference in Bellevue where they participated in workshops and competed in various business events. They all did a wonderful job representing River Ridge High School! Madison Mercado, Kaden Parker, Eli Francom, Matthew Jenkins, and Hayden Mayo all placed in the top 10 in one or more events. Way to go, Hawks!
