EHS senior in the running for $25,000 National Honor Society scholarship

Natalie DeMarco has a chance to win big

Local Enumclaw High School senior Natalie DeMarco was recently selected to be a National Honor Society Scholarship semifinalist.

As a semifinalist, DeMarco — who is the president of the EHS National Honors Society, a senior class officer, and a member of the Interact, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), and Athletic Leadership clubs, not to mention being a three-season varsity athlete for volleyball, basketball, and track — will receive a $3,200 scholarship, which she hopes to use to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

“Natalie is a force of nature at EHS,” Monica Goucher, the school’s NHS advisor, said in a press release, noting that DeMarco was central in efforts to raise money for Libya and Morocco after an earthquake in September 2023. “Natalie sees people in distress and immediately helps. We need more people like Natalie in the world.”

DeMarco is one of 575 semifinalists, and from that group, 25 will be picked to be a finalist (and get a $5,600 scholarship) and get an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C., where one lucky senior will be chosen to receive a $25,000 scholarship.

Another four finalists will also be picked for a $10,600 Pillar scholarship.

Since 1946, more than $25 million in scholarships have been awarded to outstanding NHS senior members to support college access and student success.
