First, I received this email from his science teacher about a week ago;
"I want to let you know how much our class benefits from Steffen. He asks the tough questions and gets some really deep conversations going. He is such a great young man. I know you are proud of him and his accomplishments.
He has earned our highest science seal. But, more than that, he is my only student to earn 4s on every standard in a science unit so far. That is quite an accomplishment! "
Second, the Skookum Rotary Club of Shelton will be honoring him later this week for Excellence in Academic Achievement. He's in the top 10% at his middle school.
Last, but not least, tomorrow he has his Eagle Scout Board of Review. Once completed, he will be the youngest Eagle Scout in our Ward. He achieved all this before the age of fourteen and is only one merit badge away from his Eagle Palm. Way to go, Steffen!
