2016 REDWOOD ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
Congratulations to Kylie Kvam '16, the winner of the $2500 Alumni Scholarship! She is a bright, enthusiastic young woman who has overcome some very challenging hardships. She has maintained a high GPA while being committed to Volleyball (4 years Varsity, Club Volleyball and coach to younger children), BARK (reporter and social media manager) and the Redwood Night Live Club (works with Twin Cities Coalition for Healthy Youth to provide non-drinking events for teens in Marin.) She plans to attend Cabrillo College to play Volleyball and pursue her interest in becoming a Sports Manager for Women Athletes. She is also the daughter of an alumna Laura Crunelle Kvam '83.

Another very succesful Alumni Speaker Day on May 27th! The speakers seemed to enjoy the day as much as the students. Presentations ranged from piloting to prosthetics, photographing wildlife to discovering dark matter.
