As a student in the Chimacum Pi Program since third grade, Eugenia takes pride in playing an active role in the shaping of her own education, school, and community. Here at Chimacum, you can find Eugenia raising her hand in AP and college classes, as well as serving as a Knowledge Bowl team captain, President of the Interact Club, ASB Vice President for the Class of 2022, and as a newly instated member of NHS. Outside of school, Eugenia loves getting out on the water with the Port Townsend Sailing Team, with her sister on their dinghies, and as a Lieutenant in Puget Sound Voyaging, a maritime skills, leadership, and marine biology class run by the Community Boat Project. On land, Eugenia spends time exploring her passion for music, whether that be as a First Violin in the Pi String Orchestra or as a lead Alto in the Port Townsend Youth Chorus and Vocal Ensemble. At home, Eugenia enjoys spending time at the barn with her six horses and trompsing through the woods with her dog. On lazier days, she passes time watching Jeopardy! and hosting trivia for her friends. When she can find a spare afternoon, Eugenia loves cooking and baking for her family.
Eugenia is thrilled to be serving as a Student Director on the Chimacum School Board this year. She has always been interested in politics, government, and leadership, and committed to public service. Eugenia is proud to be a 2019 recipient of the Heart of Service award, as well as an eleven-year Girl Scout. Taking every opportunity to build her skills, she has attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference two years in a row. This year, during her second year participating in 4-H’s Know Your Government program, Eugenia single-handedly ran a successful campaign for Jefferson County’s nominee for the fictional position of “4-H Governor,” who happened to be her sister.
Eugenia plans to study at a four-year university after high school.
