Congratulations to 2005 Washington Scholars

Our heartfelt congratulations to 2005 Washington Scholars A Son, M Rudd and scholar alternate, H Amos! Each year, only three students and one alternate in the entire 31st legislative district are chosen for this honor. We are thrilled that three of the 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.

A Son has also been selected to finalist standing in the competition for National Merit Scholarship. Way to go! For more information about the Washington Scholars Program, visit
