Mount Si High School (MSHS) hosted a local scholarship breakfast on May 23.
Festivities began with a musical prelude by the MSHS string quintet. Parents and scholarship winners were then welcomed to the event by MSHS Principal John Belcher. Dozens of scholarships were awarded, totaling $61,000, from 40 local community organizations.
This year the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley provided scholarships for Julia Saimo, Grace Luccio and Annie Hager. All of the young scholars excel academically, are members of the National Honor Society, have engaged in community service, and hold jobs to earn money for their college education.
“We were inspired by the hard work and tremendous achievements of these students,” said Steve Weaver, president of the Rotary Club. “We are pleased to assist them with their upcoming college expenses, and wish them well in their future academic pursuits.”
