The Mount Si High School Parent Teacher Student Association was presented several Washington State PTA awards, recognizing both parents and teachers for their contributions.

Ben Tomlisson, history teacher, received the 2014 WSPTA Outstanding Educator award. His passion for history and dedication to his students earned him several nominations from parents and students.

Parents Carol Reitz and Alice Romano each received 2014 WSPTA Golden Acorn awards for their outstanding volunteer contributions for the betterment of Mount Si High School students.

Both entered Mount Si High School last year with their freshman students, and jumped in as committed PTSA volunteers, signing up to serve as chairperson on various committees.
