Miss Prosser Corner

Hello citizens of Prosser! This is your Miss Prosser, Queen Marissa, back in action. After my time studying at Princeton University, I was lucky enough to kick off my homecoming with States Day! Being reunited with my community once again was an absolute honor and total pleasure. Courts from as far as Marysville and Chewelah came to our annual States Day Parade and Royal Scavenger Hunt. During the scavenger hunt, we got the chance to show the courts around downtown Prosser and some of our most visited locations.

With one grant, WSU will evaluate and refine the new WaKIDS program. WaKIDS aims to improve children's transition into kindergarten and their early school success through assessment and development.
The other grant will be used to evaluate and refine the Washington Assessment of the Risks and Needs of Students (WARNS) youth survey, which is designed to assist schools, courts and youth service providers to identify factors that lead to truancy.
