Kiwanis Club of Enumclaw announces scholarship winners

The Kiwanis Club of Enumclaw has announced its scholarship winners for 2014 from Enumclaw High School.

The scholarships are based on service to community and school during the students' entire high school time. Their leadership and commitment, their accomplishments, honors and recognition were all considered. The recipients were also judged on their character, integrity and values. The financial needs of the student were taken into consideration, as well as the student’s attitude, and ability to overcome any handicap.

The $1,000 award is made to the school upon successful enrollment.
