Washington Scholars program honors local trio | White River and Enumclaw high schools

Three students from the Plateau were among 196 high school seniors in the state honored as Washington Scholars or Washington Scholar Alternates in recognition of their academic achievements, leadership and community service.

The announcement was made last week by the Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Association of Washington School Principals.

Honored were Kelly Coyle and Hannah Miltimore of White River High School and David Smith of Enumclaw High.

The program annually honors the accomplishments of three high school seniors from each of the state’s 49 legislative districts – a total of 147 students. A Washington Scholar Alternate also is designated from each district.

“This award recognizes more than academic achievement,” said Gary Kipp, AWSP Executive Director. “Washington Scholars give back to their communities and demonstrate leadership in multiple ways.  They are truly well-rounded young people.”

Washington Scholar candidates, who represent the top 1 percent of graduating seniors, are nominated by high school principals based on academic, leadership and community-service accomplishments.
