The following is a press release from Pacific Lutheran University:
Five local students have been named Pacific Lutheran University President’s Scholars and awarded the prestigious $30,000 per year President’s Scholarship — with the opportunity to compete for more:
• Emmi Clay, White River High School
• Sabrina Page, White River High School
• Hailey Ledenko, Enumclaw High School
Only 123 total students were selected for this top academic and leadership scholarship offered by PLU. Over 400 incoming first-year students who met the high eligibility standards applied. President’s Scholars are selected based on academic achievement, service and leadership, as well as the potential to effect positive change and leadership in both the academic and co-curricular life of PLU. This year’s President’s Scholarship recipients on average have a 3.99 GPA. These top students have been invited to interview in February to compete for the next level of PLU Presidential Scholarships — one of 10 $35,000 per year Harstad Founder’s Scholarships or one of five full-tuition Regents’ Scholarships.
