The Rotary Club of Ojai honored Katie Medina, a seventh
grader at Sunset, as the Physical Education Project (PEP) student of the month. Her teacher Mrs. Guzik said “Katie is a
‘lead by example’ type of student.” She is confident, kind and
always encouraging to those around her. She is a talented athlete who excels in her PE class and pushes herself to go beyond the minimum, even when it does not come easy. These
character traits will take Katie far in life! She was honored at a
Rotary luncheon at Soule Park in Ojai and received a $200
scholarship. Katie, Sunset is proud of you!
