BHS Scholarships

While students getting in trouble dominated the news this past week, there was good news to be had at Bremerton High School.

The Bremerton Schools Foundation Board announced it would award $9,350 in scholarships to this year’s seniors and that will award $6,000 in grants to educators in the 2007-08 school year.

According to an e-mail I received from a member, the foundation is made up of BHS alumni and community members “that came together with the goal of raising money for scholarships for students of Bremerton, and (to) help the Bremerton School District achieve their goal of improving student learning.”

To get the awards, students and parents need pick up applications from the BHS counselors’ office after February 12.

The foundation provided the following list of scholarships:
