Proceeds from our club's Viking Fest Pancake Breakfast and the Raab Foundation provided 11 scholarships. Seven went to graduating seniors and four went to college students. Above, Lion Matt Alvarado announces the North Kitsap High School scholarship recipients June 5 while Lion Joyce Smith looks on.
The scholarships were each in the amount of $1,000 for Lion Joe Stenstrom (Olympic College), and graduating NK seniors Brittany Brown, Lydia Leach, and Alissa Neuman. $500 scholarships were given to NK seniors Mencius Leonard and Arory Milyard, and to Kingston High seniors Korina Waring-Enriquez and Sonja Redbird, as well as April McCabe (Western Washington University), Walker McCabe (Whatcom Community College), and Lion Sebastian Ford (St. Olaf's).
