WIAA Names Thomas Jefferson’s Turner, East Valley’s Schreier as September's Student Spotlights
RENTON – The WIAA is pleased to announce Thomas Jefferson’s Kenneth Turner and East Valley’s (Yakima) Shelby Schreier as the first "Student Spotlight" honorees. The monthly “Student Spotlight” is a campaign dedicated to highlighting two student participant success stories from around the state and works in conjunction with the WIAA’s new Activities Matter website.
Turner is a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School in Auburn and was awarded WIAA Athlete of the Week honors after scoring 32 of the Raiders’ 33 points in a close win against Puyallup. Turner has continued to light up the gridiron as he has racked up 434 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards and threw a touchdown in a performance against Kentwood.
Schreier is a senior at East Valley High School in Yakima. In the opening jamboree, Schreier recorded 22 digs, 21 kills and nine blocks. Schreier, a team captain, has led her team to a 3-1 record so far this season, and hopes to help the Red Devils return to the 2A Volleyball State Championship in November.

The Activities Matter website was launched at the beginning of the 2015 school year and is designed to be a resource for member schools and their communities to support the case for interscholastic sports and activities. Activities Matter consolidates a variety of dynamic resources, programs, and original content to highlight the long-term benefits associated with student participation in sports and activities.
The individuals featured in the "Student Spotlights" are selected from the pool of Athlete of the Week winners.
