Enumclaw High grad lands scholarship

Kyndra Rademacher plans to attend Boise State University in the fall.

An Enumclaw High School graduate recently received a grant from the Boeing Credit Union Foundation to help fund her college education.

A total of 80 students from around Washington received either a $2,500 or $3,500 grant to be used toward higher education, the BECU Foundation stated in a press release, including EHS graduate Kyndra Rademacher, who plans to attend Boise State University in the fall.

“BECU is passionate about improving the financial well-being of students, our members and their communities,” Rachel Van Noord, BECU’s director of community outreach and executive director of the BECU Foundation, said in the press release. “Through the scholarship program, our goal is to help students establish strong financial futures by lessening the barriers they face when pursuing degrees.”

Interested students can apply online for the BECU Foundation scholarships in January of each year at BECU.org/scholarship. Members must be graduating high school seniors or undergraduate students currently enrolled in an accredited postsecondary degree program (students of graduate programs are not eligible), and have a passion for helping others.
