Mentors, students celebrate a job well done

Marking the completion of the sixth year of Port Washington High School’s Community Mentor Program, students and adults gathered for a celebration at the school last month. The program brings adult and peer mentors together with other students in an effort to nurture relationships, improve the school culture and student performance and reduce truancy. As part of the program, mentors and students work on community service projects, one of which yielded dozens of handmade blankets for Project Linus, a nonprofit organization that provides blankets to children in need. Members of that group were (top photo, from left) Brenna Johnson, Mahala Heniadis, Julia Burke, Laurie Miske, office manager for the Saukville Police Department, Madison Velez, Claire Holtebeck, Shelby Paradowski, Gabi Scheftgen and Heather Boesch, executive administrative assistant at the Thiensville Police Department and a Port High graduate. All the students and adults who participated in this year’s program posed for a group photo.                   Photos by Bill Schanen IV
