Army National Guard Spec. Allison M. Henderson has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Sill in Lawton, Okla., as an honor graduate and received a letter of commendation.

The soldier’s academic and military accomplishments were a direct result of energetic application of sound judgment and newly acquired technical knowledge.  The soldier’s attention to detail, appearance, cooperative spirit, military bearing, and military courtesy were commendable and exemplary, and contributed to the battery cadre of the 19th field artillery regiment’s successful mission accomplishments.

During the nine weeks of basic combat training, the soldier studied the Army mission and received instruction and training exercises in drill and ceremonies, Army history, core values and traditions, military courtesy, military justice, physical fitness, first aid, rifle marksmanship, weapons use, map reading and land navigation, foot marches, armed and unarmed combat, and field maneuvers and tactics.

She is the daughter of Melanie R. Hughes of Sacramento and David C. Henderson of Woodland.

Henderson graduated in 2002 from Woodland Senior High School, and received a bachelor’s degree in 2006 from UC San Diego.

Sarena Grossjan and Robert Bonner, local students from UC Davis, will be traveling to Costa Rica to volunteer with underprivileged families and children.

The students have been selected to participate in a unique four-week volunteer program in Costa Rica, working alongside 20 to 50 other individuals from around the globe who share their passion to impact theworld. Grossjan and Bonner will be working under the direction of an organization called International Student Volunteers.

During their first two weeks in Costa Rica, Grossjan and Bonner will volunteer on a diverse range of community development projects working with families and children living in poverty, and assisting in local initiatives to develop community infrastructure.

The majority of ISV’s projects are grassroots initiatives, created in direct consultation with local communities. As a developing nation dependent on agriculture and tourism, environmental protection and community initiatives are essential components for sustainable development of Costa Rica.

Over 4,000 students travel with ISV every year across 6 continents. ISV has 9 offices internationally and its head office in the USA is a registered non-profit organization.
