    ´╗┐Standout Grads WOODLAND Tia Tsugawa often talks about her need for perseverance. In the last few years, the Woodland senior required every ounce of it she could muster. She spent her 16th birthday in the hospital with her dad, who was suffering congestive heart failure. Later he was diagnosed with stage four cancer in his heart and lungs (now in remission). Then nike downshifter 6 her mom was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. She lost her grandparents in a car accident. Then her parents divorced. Tsugawa said she's proud of how she has handled these challenges, but she admits it wasn't always easy. Losing her grandmother, a mother figure after Tia's parents divorced (they're both still alive), was especially nike hyperadapt hard, she said. "It wasn't just senioritis. I just didn't care about anything. . I was kind of just like, 'what's the point?' " Tia, who was a "freak" about her grades through junior year, said her grades faltered and her zest for school waned, even though she'd been class president three years running. She credits nike logo her older sister, Lynnell, 22, with getting her back to her religious faith, which had flickered during her trials.
