Chase Ripple, VSCSD
“During the COVID shut down, I was courageous and chose to be impactful in the time of need. Fareway employees were considered essential workers. I had some goals and set out to accomplish them during that time of school shutdowns. Instead of sitting at home, I was working 30-40 hours a week at Fareway along with keeping up with my online school work.”
Katelyn Hyland, VSCSD
“I feel that relationships are built on communication with others in an uplifting and enthusiastic manner. The Clickstop Core Values define ideal character, and although I am not perfect, these are values that I strive to achieve.”
Samantha Walton, VSCSD
“Being a hard worker is something that I pride myself in because even if I am not the best at something if I put in the time and work to get better, there will be progress. Throughout my personal experiences, I have learned that someone who is naturally really good at something but doesn’t work hard is not nearly as valuable to a team as someone who is a hard worker.”
Ashlyn Wilkins, CPUCSD
“I’ve come to realize that the final result is not always the most important. The journey itself, what is learned along the way and experiences gained, is most important.”
