In a local contest conducted by the station, Mr. Smith was nominated by his student Destinee McKinion. STAR 101.5’s afternoon personality, Curt Kruse, made a surprise visit to Smith’s classroom in Burien.

Each student received a goody bag full of prizes from Sound Credit Union, Dairy Farmers of Washington, KOMO 4, and STAR 101.5.
