Constant Lu opened his first office in Hazel Dell shortly after he graduated from dentistry school. “I like the community,” Lu says. “People are friendly, open and there are many ways for people to get involved.” Lu is very involved, donating many hours to providing dental services to those in need through Compassion Connect.
A Jemtegaard Middle School girl's design skills helped her win a Washougal Schools Foundation art contest to find a logo for its annual fun run, the Student Stride for Education. Eighth-grader Taylor Grasseth's drawing of the Stride Cat mascot won her that honor, and she was honored at a March 28 assembly. Taylor is a student in Gabrielle Iverson's advanced art class. The Student Stride for Education, a 5K run/walk, will be held May 17 at Washougal High School's Fishback Stadium.
