WPC Young Professionals present scholarships to WA state's first graduating Charter school Class!
Students Queen Johnson and Alistar Bruback showcase the value of charter schools this week as they were selected for their outstanding achievement and received $2500 from Washington Policy Center as part of their inaugural Summit Sierra Scholarship. Each of these seniors embodies the principles of hard work, good character, integrity, and leadership as they prepare to graduate this month as part of the state’s first charter school graduating class. Their stories are proof that, against difficult odds, the long-held dreams of them and their families are coming true thanks to the work of the new charter schools in our state.
The scholarships were presented to the students at a ceremony on Wednesday, June 5th, which included a panel event featuring three WPC Young Professionals board members and WPC’s president on how to succeed in life after high school. WPC’s board of directors and YP advisory board members have funded the annual scholarship for at least the next four years.
