Out of 63 boys from the entire western U.S., Lucas finished 12th in Slalom, which was the top finish for anyone from the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington or Northern Idaho). He was 14th in Giant Slalom (2nd highest from the PNW region), and in Super-G he ended up 30th overall (3rd best finish from the PNW).

  • SGS Alumna Opens Guilds' School Penny Drive

    The Spokane Guilds' School "Penny Drive" opened at Saint George's on March 27 with a testimonial from alumna Ashley (Herling) Simpson '05. Ashley spoke at the Middle and Upper School Assembly about her son James, who suffered a stroke at the age of two. Thanks to the physical and occupational therapy he received at the Guilds' School, James is now a normally functioning three-year old. "I had volunteered at the Guilds' School when I was in high school at SGS, but never thought that I would need their services," said Ashley, who is now an RN at Sacred Heart/Holy Family Medical Centers.

    SGS juniors Alex Watkins and Katie Thew serve on the Guilds' School's student advisory board and are coordinating the Penny Drive fundraiser at SGS through April 21. They introduced Saint George's "buddy family" of Angela Keatts and her daughter Preslie at the Lower School Assembly on March 24. See a Photo Gallery of them on the SGS website. Funds raised will support therapy for Preslie and over 250 other local infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities. Plus SGS families can participate in the Penny Drive's Community Day on Saturday, April 22 by collecting contributions from drivers at the intersection of Frances and Maple/Ash. Contact Alex or Katie for times and details. So send in your pennies (and larger change and bills) for the Penny Drive milk jug in your student's room; there is a prize awaiting the class that raises the most money per student!
