LWHS runner named CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week

    Hunter Toyoda, a senior at Lake Washington High School, is the week eight winner of CenturyLink's High School Athlete of the Week program. He was selected based on his leadership through athletics, academics and community action.

    This is Toyoda’s second year as the captain for Lake Washington High School's cross country team. He maintains a 4.0 GPA as a senior at LWHS. He has taken nine Advanced Placement classes and wants to study chemistry in college.

    Toyoda’s favorite community service projects were visiting to local elementary schools to provide after-school tutoring and support for students.

    As part of Toyoda’s recognition, LWHS will receive a $1,000 grant from CenturyLink and the Seahawks. Toyoda will attend a home Seahawks game and plans to take his mom, Amy Myhre (a Kirkland Middle School teacher), with him.
