Maya Trettevik graduated from Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA on Saturday, Dec. 11, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services. This was the first in-person graduation ceremony held at WWU in the last two years due to COVID. Maya was one of many students who managed their way through the COVID-19 restrictions to complete her degree.
Maya is now working as a Home Study and Post Adoption Coordinator with an adoption agency in western Washington. Her goal is to learn all she can about adoptions at this level before going on for a Masters of Social Work and continue working in the field of adoptions.
Maya would like to thank all the people who believed in her and encouraged her through her studies, including the many organizations in Forks who provided much-needed scholarships her freshman and sophomore years after graduating from Forks High School. These scholarships included Quillayute Valley, Soroptimist International of Olympic Rain Forest, Albert Haller Foundation, Hull Family Foundation, Emblem Club, Florence Ninke Music, FHS Class of 56, Scottish Rites of Freemasonry Bremerton Valley, Forks Elks Lodge Fred Orr, Concerned Citizens, Clallam County 4-H, and Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Maya was active in Christian Campus Ministry at WWU and is thankful also for their housing stipend her senior year.
