Lubchuk graduates from University of Washington Bothell

Shelby Lubchuk, the daughter of Dennis and Luana Lubchuk of Clinton, recently graduated from the University of Washington Bothell (UWB).

Lubchuk, 19, transferred to UWB after completing Running Start and graduating with an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from Skagit Valley College. Lubchuk was successful academically at UWB, having been a member of four National Honor Societies, appearing on the Dean’s List for six consecutive quarters and earning magna cum laude Honors with a 3.97 grade point average (GPA).

Lubchuk earned a degree in media and communication studies and enjoyed the flexibility and creative freedom allowed by the major, according to a press release. She pursued many of her passions at UWB, including publishing original research findings, creating poetry chapbooks, writing/directing short films, participating in formal debates, hosting live radio shows, and working with nonprofit organizations. She also spent time as a legislative intern for state Sen. Randi Becker.

The Lubchuks formally thanked the following for their scholarships and support: American Legion Women’s Auxiliary Post 141, Island County 4-H, Island County Fair Association, Raymond and Eva Mae Gabelein Memorial, South Whidbey Garden Club, and TJ Roehl Memorial Foundation.
