    Kelly Nelson All Sentinel staff members receive a list of nominees and evaluate the students’ characters in the areas of attitude, integrity and effort. This evaluation, together with the application and GPA, determines whether or not the students have earned membership into the organization. At Sentinel, projects include activities such as the Peer-Tutoring Program and, at Christmas, sponsoring several needy families to help make their holidays brighter by providing food and gifts.  Fore more information contact either Karen Umbaugh at or Kelly Nelson at
