A Community Partner

Congrats to Rachel Lucy for earning a WASA Community Leadership Award. The community health director for PeaceHealth St. Joseph, Lucy has worked closely with Lynden Schools for four years, providing high school students experiences in healthcare classes on campus. She has challenged students to play a role in shaping the community’s health through the Healthy Futures Project where students present to local leaders about health factors influencing Lynden. Lucy helped Lynden Schools identify solutions to fund mental health for students who otherwise would not have access to therapy and her expertise helped the district secure a $40,000 grant from PeaceHealth for mental health support.
