#77 is back in action, and still punchin’ the pedal through the metal.

Coupeville Elementary student Scotlyn Helm, who has torn up the racetrack since joining the Washington Quarter Midget Association, returned to action this weekend.

This time around, though, she participated in her first dirt track events, after previously racing on harder surfaces.

Scotlyn is aiming at racing again in January, which should give dad Jerry some time to clean off all the dirt from her speedy ride.

“I feel the need … the need for speed.”

Ready to rumble.

A little snow can’t stop Coupeville’s #1 speed demon.

Glenda Merwine

Coupeville students are losing a tireless advocate.

Glenda Merwine, who has been on the school board since 2013, is leaving a year before her term ends.

Her resignation was tendered at Monday’s board meeting and is effective Dec. 1.

Merwine’s replacement, when named, will serve out her term, with the position up for election in 2023.

Initially appointed to replace the departing Carol Bishop in Jan. 2013, Merwine formerly served as the Coupeville Elementary School principal and the district’s Director of Student Learning.

A leadership coach for the Association of Washington School Principals, she also supervises student teachers for Seattle Pacific University and the University of Phoenix.

Merwine is the board’s current Vice President.

She still has her pedal through the metal.

Coupeville Elementary student Scotlyn Helm wrapped up her inaugural season racing cars with the Washington Quarter Midget Association Saturday and did so with great success.

The speedy racer competed in four races this season, across two different classes, landing on the awards podium three times.

“Couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishments in such a short time,” said rad dad Jerry Helm.

She has a need for speed.

Scotlyn Helm is not done with racing, however, as she will pivot to dirt track racing in November.

If you’re interested in sponsoring her in her driving adventures — she needs dirt tires among other things — you can do so by popping over to Venmo and looking up her dad’s account at Jerry-Helm-1.
