Rotary Student of the Month (September 2012)
Before attending University of Idaho, Seasun Jones started attending NIC in 2000 and in 2002 she left and started a family. In 2004 she was blessed with a son, Tuker. Despite some challenges, Seasun returned to school at NIC when her son reached school age in 2009 and then transferred to the University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene to complete her bachelors of Science degree. Seasun has achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.7 and is looking forward to graduating with her BS in environmental science in May 2013.
In addition to her academic career at U-Idaho, Seasun has been accepted into the GREEN program on renewable energy. In December of this year she will have the opportunity to gain hands on experience in this field in Costa Rica. Upon graduation Seasun looks forward to working here locally and having the opportunity to better her community and the town in which she was born and raised. Seasun hopes to continue her formal education in the future and is eager for what her vocation will teach her.
