Miss Vergien is the person at Interlake you can go to if a kid needs a little extra push with a college admissions department. With seeing kids be the first in their family to go to college as a deeply personal issue, Miss Vergien has personally seen to it that countless Interlake students have had the chance to get that acceptance letter in the mail and be the first generation to step on a University campus or enroll in a trade school. She will advocate for the right ones that truly just need a break and Interlake students know that when Miss Vergien goes to bat for them that if she can't get someone off a wait list, nobody can.

"This is Connie's first year with a kindergarten class after several years teaching older elementary school students. I've no doubt that she will bring the same unconditional love and commitment she always has - knowing her role as teacher is so very important and that what she does and says reflects on her students," said Jennifer Lundeen. Lundeen nominated Guinn for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom award.
