Senior project turns into a job for future teacher

It didn’t seem to take long for Emily Sullivan, 17, to stand out. 

The senior at Meadowdale High School spent only three months volunteering with the city of Mountlake Terrace’s Kids Krew program as part of her senior project when her supervisor decided Sullivan needed a more permanent role with the program.

“There was a great opportunity to keep her,” said Lori Johnson, youth program coordinator for the city’s Recreation and Parks Department, calling the teen a natural fit.
