Star Polisher – Travis Ruhter

Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Ruhter,” writes R.A. Long 12th grader Abriana Alba-Estrada and Mark Morris 12th grader Ana Maria Sanchez Matias.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Abriana says, “Mr. Ruhter has always been an encouraging and supportive teacher. I have chosen to do Running Start my junior and senior year, and I have not been able to make many connections with teachers or receive a lot of support for it. However, choosing to take Spanish 3 my junior year and go to Spain with members of my Spanish class helped introduce me to Mr. Ruhter. He is very compassionate about his job and wants his students to succeed. He has always been so kind to me and a helpful teacher throughout Spanish 3 and our groups adventures in Spain. His constant support and passion for Spanish have helped me decide I want to pursue a minor in Spanish once I graduate high school and transfer to a university next year. All I can really say is thank you Mr. Ruhter for being a great role model and for caring so much about your students!”

“[Mr. Ruhter] made me feel like I have a purpose in life [and] keeps pushing me into passing and getting stuff done for Jack Time,” adds Ana Maria.
