Announcing Jaime Ramirez - Distinguished Alumni 2020
The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation has announced Jaime Ramirez as the Distinguished Alumni of 2020. Jaime, a teacher at Cascade Elementary School in East Wenatchee, will be recognized at a virtual ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m.
Jaime is the first in his family to graduate college. After WVC, he attended Eastern Washington University and graduated summa cum laude. He then completed graduate school at Grand Canyon University online with a 4.0 grade point average. Jaime now teaches physical education, coaches boys and girls soccer, mentors high school students, serves as an interpreter during parent-teacher conferences and regularly shows support to his colleagues and his students at school events.
“I am here for the students. In whatever way I can help them out, I will do it.” Jaime said. “My favorite part (of being an educator) is when I can help someone that truly needed help. If you make a child smile and help them learn something that they thought they couldn’t accomplish, that is my highlight — when kids are feeling happy and excited to learn.”
