Western Washington University student Kelci Clare, daughter of Mike and Marci Clare of Enumclaw, received a $2,000 Double Eagle II Scholarship II for Science Education for the 2013-14 academic year.
The scholarships are given to future science, math and technology teachers who graduated from a Washington high school or homeschooled in Washington.
Clare graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2008 and is scheduled to graduate from Western at the end of 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education.
Clare is currently a peer mentor in Western’s Woodring College of Education, and a peer advisor for Western’s Academic Advising Center.
After graduation, she hopes to teach math or science to elementary or middle school students.
