Ryjil Christiansen, a Homer High School graduate and a junior at UAF, received the Women's Studies Student of the Year award last weekend in Fairbanks.

Homer High School student Libby Bushell won the local TrigStar Award by scoring 100 percent on a national trigonometry test administered by the Kenai Chapter of the Alaska Society of Professional Land Surveyors. She was one of four out of 307 Alaska students from 18 high schools to receive 100 percent marks in the timed test. Tie scores are settled by fastest time winning, and Bushell took third in the statewide competition behind two Bartlett High School, Anchorage students, Matt Dougherty and Michelle Stefens. Homer students Stefan From-Mueller, Kacey Shupp and Jared Szajkowski had the next highest scores from Homer. From-Mueller was one of six students statewide scoring 95 or better and Shupp one of six with 90 or better.
