The STAR Scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year was presented to Annabelle Sharick, a June graduate of Enumclaw High School.

It was given during the June 11 senior awards ceremony at EHS, presented by Jill Harjo, STAR Scholarship committee chair for P.E.O. Chapter EF of Enumclaw.

Sharick is the daughter of Natasha and Todd Sharick and was recommended to Chapter EF by Dave Stokke, leadership instructor at EHS. She will attend Boise State University, where she plans to study health science.

The $2,500 P.E.O. Star Scholarship is based on a student’s leadership, extracurricular activities, community service, academics and potential for future success.

The P.E.O. Sisterhood, founded in 1869, is an international philanthropic and educational organization that promotes increased educational opportunities for women. There are nearly 6,000 local chapters in the U.S. and Canada, with nearly 250,000 members. The organization has provided more than $304 million in financial assistance to more than 102,000 recipients.
