Some of Kristina’s achievements include the Hugh O’Brien Youth Scholar, charter member of the FH Key Club, charter member of EWU Circle K International Club, member Kent AM Club, charter member Cascadia Internet Club, President of Kiwanis Club of Oak Bay, District First Lady 2009-2010, and International Trustee’s Spouse 2013-2016.
Vicky Thalacker, Kristina’s mother and past FH Kiwanis Club president, added, “Kristina was a dedicated Kiwanian from the time she joined Friday Harbor Key Club as a charter member. I have always been so proud of her, and I am touched that my Kiwanis club continues to be there for me. I hope all who knew Kristina will take time on this bench to remember what a kind and generous spirit she had.”
