Congratulations to Yabsira Nigussie, the Student of the Month for Ponderosa High School!  She joined us for our January 14 Zoom meeting, accompanied by her mother and her teacher Jill Nabena, who commended Yabsira for her “inclusive personality and character.”
Yabsira has served the Ponderosa community in a variety of roles.  She is on the Student Council Executive Board and the NHS Executive Board.  She also served as the President of the Women’s Select choir and in PAC, Link Crew and DECA.  Yabsira played tennis for Ponderosa for two years.   She has also served the larger community on Diversity conferences and as a library volunteer working with children.
Yabsira plans to attend an out-of-state college to study nursing.  We wish you all the best in your future endeavors, Yabsira!
