Eastside Fire and Rescue firefighters and staff recently honored five high school seniors in the agency’s service area with its self-funded annual scholarships.

This year, Cedarcrest High School senior Taylor Kirschenman received a scholarship at an awards ceremony on May 29. Seniors from Eastlake, Issaquah, Skyline and Tahoma were also selected to receive the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 2878 annual scholarships, which were established in 1999. The scholarship program expanded in 2004, to include a scholarship for a student family member of an EF&R staff member.

More than $48,000 in scholarships have been awarded to local students over the years.
