As part of the Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program, the Comcast Foundation has awarded Shorecrest High School student Braydon Southerland a $1,000 college scholarship.

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students.

The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.

In addition to his academic excellence, Braydon is a weekend ski instructor with Outdoors For All, a Northwest nonprofit that helps physically and mentally disabled people enjoy the mountain life by skiing with their peers.

Braydon was awarded his scholarship in a statewide ceremony at the Governor’s Mansion in Olympia.

88 Washington students received awards this year to "the best and brightest high school seniors for their community service, academic performance and leadership skills."
