Thanks to coordinated efforts by Wally Mahoney, the BBRC has re-connected with Sammamish High School with several projects
on the near horizon.
In cooperation with the Sammamish Honor Society president Doan Si Bui, a group of SHS students will join with the BBRC for the annual tree-planting project on the
Sammamish River. The project is set to take place on Saturday, October 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Mahoney has also put together a career counseling project, which will benefit Sammamish High School students. In conjunction with SHS counselor
Shanon Magnusson, the next step is to schedule a counseling session at the High School. Mark Esteb is the coordinator working with Shanon, while John Sheeran
is in charge of the volunteer counselors.
