“America is a positive young woman who has the leadership skills, work ethic, and passion to be successful in the field of her choice.” ~ Mark Ross Kondo, Quincy High School FBLA Adviser
Washington FBLA is excited to announce our March Member of the Month—congratulations to America Simental, a junior from Quincy High School!
Currently in her third year of FBLA, America stands out because of the professionalism, positivity, and friendship she demonstrates while serving as chapter president of the Quincy FBLA chapter. From training members at their Java Jacks Espresso stand to hosting a local Pro Sports Career Day, America leads by example and is always ready to serve her peers. This attitude has allowed America to earn the respect of both students and staff at Quincy High School and sets her apart as an outstanding student member.
Outside of FBLA, America continues to pursue her passions for business and education by being a member of the University of Washington Foster School of Business’ Young Executives of Color program. As a young woman who empowers and inspires those around her to elevate their futures, America truly embodies what it means to be a future business leader.

Quincy High School American Sign Language II and III students participated in the annual Brandyn Perez Memorial Deaf-Blind Meal this week. Students learned how to walk with a cane, tactile sign, and ate a meal while simulating being Deaf-Blind. Thank you to Teacher of the Visually Impaired Tarin Kendrick, Parent of a Deaf-Blind Child Guest Speaker Sundi Perez, Deaf Consultant Jordan Gutierrez, and QHS Culinary Arts Teacher Elaine Reynolds for your assistance and expertise in making this a powerful learning experience for our students.
Dear Quincy High School Family,
I am delighted to have been selected as the new Principal of Quincy High School. Quincy High School has a reputation of being a wonderful place of learning with terrific students and an outstanding staff. It is my privilege to start the 2017-2018 school year with you.
As a first generation college graduate, I am very proud to hold an earned doctorate in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University, an Educational Specialist degree from Point Loma Nazarene University, a Masters of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of North Florida, and a Bachelors of Music from the University of Nebraska/Omaha. I have two adult sons: Dr. Kristofor Belew Nyquist, my youngest, who completed his Ph.D. in Biophysics at CAL/Berkeley and is a senior scientist in Menlo Park, California, and Brian Belew Nyquist, my eldest, who is pursuing a second degree in chemical engineering at WSU after 3 years in the Peace Corps in Paraguay. Brian recently married Ninfa Anahida Roa Martinez of Paraguay.
I am eager and excited to meet our students, our staff, and our families. As the new school year rapidly approaches, I look forward to meeting you and engaging in conversations where I can listen to your suggestions and ideas to help continue to make Quincy High School an outstanding place for our students.
Enjoy these last days of summer with your families and please mark our Open House Event on August 28th, from 5:00-6:30 pm on your calendar! I look forward to meeting you in the very near future as we begin the 2017-2018 school year.
