On Wednesday, May 28, the Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park honored each of four Senior students with a $1000 scholarship check for academic excellence in honors and advanced placement classes. 

They were involved in many activities during their four years at Shorecrest High School in school, in the community, Girl Scouts, and with personal projects, locally and globally.

Three were members of the Lake Forest Park Youth Council, one as a Youth Court judge, and all of them in the National Honor Society, tutoring, music, sports, and a variety of other community and global projects as leaders. They have earned many awards and honors for their good works. Their accompanying essays were well written to express what "Service Above Self" means to them. Each girl also gave a short speech to answer a question presented by Ed Pearson to tell personal, unique things about themselves.

During the ceremony, attended by family members, LFP Rotary members, and Stan Miner, former District 5030 Assistant Governor, the recipients received their check with a folder containing information about future Rotary opportunities. The University of Washington, Gonzaga, Willamette University, Oregon, and Northwestern University of Illinois, will find them ready and eager to continue their learning in the Fall.

Members of the Scholarship Committee were Marjorie Ando, Ed Pearson, and James Rohrback.
