Students will help research cure for cancer

Mariner sophomores Marlene Barajas-Salas, Amber Carbajal, Portia Forson, Alberta Gbla, and freshman Nina Huynh will start researching for cures for cancer at a two-week paid internship at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle this summer. The students were among 150 applicants who applied for the job as biotech interns.

The opportunity was made possible through the highly competitive Fred Hutchinson High School Explorers, a program funded by the National Cancer Institute that provides students with hands-on activities in training labs, the chance to work alongside cancer research scientists and to learn about different stages of their careers, and to look at steps toward obtaining a career in biomedical research. Students accepted to the program also will have priority access to an eight-week paid internship at Fred Hutch the summer before their senior year.

 

Mariner physical night

Mariner High School is having a night to get sport physicals done. The event will be held in the College and Career Readiness Center and Counseling offices on Wednesday, May 30 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Athletes will be able to get their sports physical for $20.

Local doctors come to Mariner and provide the physicals and clearance for athletes that need them. The money collected is used in the Blue and Gold club to help other Mariner students in need pay for ASB cards, AP testing, athletic supplies, school supplies, among other things. The money collected goes right back into the school population.

Sports physicals are good for two years.

Kamiak students to perform ‘Spamalot!’

The drama students at Kamiak will present the musical Spamalot! where audiences will find their holy grail and everyone will have the chance of a lifetime to experience one of the greatest musicals of the modern age. The Tony-award-winning musical was lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail and retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table with the help of flying cows and killer rabbits.

The show will be held in the Kamiak Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. on May 4, 5, 11, and 12, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. Tickets are now on sale for $15 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens. All seats are reserved. Please call 425-366-5428 to reserve tickets, credit and debit cards accepted. Ticket order forms also are available in the bookkeeping office at Kamiak.
