Congratulations to 2004 Washington Scholars

Our heartfelt congratulations to 2004 Washington Scholar, T Morrison, and scholar alternate, C Kremling! Each year, only four students in the entire 31st legislative district are chosen for this honor. We are thrilled that two of the four students selected this year are from Enumclaw High School.

The Washington Scholars program recognizes the accomplishments of three high school seniors from each of the state's 49 legislative districts. Students receive state scholarships, for up to four years of public resident undergraduate tuition and fees. The scholarships can be used at any Washington public or independent college or university.

High school principals nominate the top 1 percent of their school's graduating senior class on the basis of academic achievement, leadership and community service. A committee, composed of high school principals and college admissions staff, selects the top four students in each legislative district, naming three as scholars and one as a scholar alternate. In fiscal year 2004, the program will use $1.919 million to help about 440 students.

Way to go!
