Senior Spotlight: The EV-W School District would like to recognize Julia Stotz, daughter of Amy and David. Julia would like to acknowledge her grandmother's caring demeanor and contagious sense of humor. Currently, Julia is enrolled and accruing post-secondary credits in College Algebra and Advanced Psychology. She's also very active in co-curricular activities, par- ticipating in Student Council, Volleyball and Track. Friends describe Julia as caring and funny, and always trying to make some- one else's day a little bit brighter. Julia will mostly miss the friendly faces and heart-felt caring atmo- sphere of EV-W students and teachers when she graduates. The EV-W administration, faculty and staff are extremely proud of Julia.
