EHS students receive Masonic scholarships
Enumclaw High School juniors Anna Bursch and Connery McLaughlin were named Ray Limbo Masonic Junior Achievement Scholarship winners during an awards banquet on April 13.
The Masons have awarded one male and one female from the current EHS junior class for many years. Local Mason Ray Limbo set the scholarship up with Mr. Poe when he was principal of EHS.
Bursch and McLaughlin each will receive a $1,000 scholarship at graduation. Abbie Jo Carlson and Kyle Morgan were runners-up and will receive $500 each. This year the Masons were able to continue to add additional awards to all the remaining finalists which included Annabelle Sharick, Hunter Storm, Emma Gunter, Josh Blad, Kendrick Herbst and Keegan Ulrich. They will each be awarded $300.
Money for the longstanding Junior Achievement scholarship comes from the Mason’s pancake breakfast on the second Sunday every month.
