EHS juniors receive Limbo Scholarships

The Ray Limbo Junior Achievement Scholarship has been aiding students further their education for more than 50 years.

The Enumclaw Freemasons honored 10 students with this year’s Ray Limbo Junior Achievement Scholarship. Now in its 54th year, it is one of the longest-running scholarship programs in the Enumclaw School District.

It began when Tom Poe Sr. was superintendent and was the result of Ray Limbo wanting to recognize the academic achievements of members of the EHS junior class. The Enumclaw Freemasons raise money each year for the scholarships through their monthly breakfasts.

This year’s recipients (and the amount of their scholarship) are: in back, from left, Matthew Helmer $500, Kaden Bolton $1,000, Ricardo Portillo $750, Wyatt Bort $500, and Ty Albrecht $250; in front are Emma Murphy $500, Carli Boger $250, Gabrielle DeMarco $1,000, Maya Rismiller $750, and Madison Rubin $500.
