Strong finish

Published June 14, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

Maren Hanson is making a strong finish to her senior year at Anacortes High School. Last weekend she finished as overall winner in the women’s division of the Tesoro March Point 5K Run. She had work ahead in the coming days, as she is one of six AHS valedictorians who will speak at the evening commencement ceremony. Hanson will attend Brigham Young University in the fall, with plans to earn a doctorate in physical therapy.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
