Alec Mitchell has been obsessed with cars and trucks since he was little. When we moved to Eugene and found out about Springfield’s auto program he transferred high schools. Alec worked hard as a Freshman to prove he was a part of the auto team and wanted every class he could possibly get into. Last year before things shut down he was even able to earn an internship with the school district working at the bus barn. When that program came to an end he went out searching for a way to stay in the auto industry and continue to learn. He was able to find an apprenticeship program working for a custom auto fabrication shop. At work he sands and cuts custom auto parts, as well as works on the shop’s test cars for up and coming custom auto parts. Alec’s love of all things auto has helped him help others. He’s been known to help friends when needed on auto projects, he even gifted a family that was struggling to pay for the auto parts they needed to get their only car up and running. His latest projects include adding keyless entry to his truck and restoring an old farm truck for his younger sister. We greatly appreciate all that Springfield high school has given Alec, from great teachers and mentors to programs where he was able to thrive and enjoy his high school experience.

Hailey Donaworth is a multi-talented individual who has done her best to get the most out of her high school years. She is a dedicated and hardworking student who is also a top notch actress, musician, and singer.
Hailey loves to perform and she is such a pleasure to see and hear! The Springfield High School band, choir, and theater programs have been her “home away from home” since the start of her 9th grade year. Her dream is to become a professional performer and be on Broadway!
In addition to being “on stage”, Hailey has been a positive mentor to younger students in these programs over the years. Hailey has a helping heart the size of Texas and she has made tremendous impact on those around her. Anyone who sees Hailey smiles. Her positive energy is infectious and
I believe she will be an amazing addition to any college campus.

Lydia Dapkus has had a passion for the ocean and marine life for the majority of her life. She is pursuing a degree in Marine Biology, but is open to wherever that path may lead (especially if it entails a career with NatGeo). While she is not thrifting or searching for all things vintage, Lydia’s favorite hobby is singing and playing the guitar. Lydia has a sensitive and empathetic soul and a generous and giving spirit. This is most evident at Christmas, her favorite time of year. Gift giving to friends, family and those in the community gives her great joy. Lydia’s sense of humor and contagious smile round out this beautiful redhead’s personality. Wherever her journey takes her, she will be a blessing to the lives she touches.
