“These awards are an excellent opportunity to support local, talented students,” according to foundation executive director Brad Thomas. “It is exciting to see how far these five students will go with full-ride support for two years of college.”

The full-ride scholarship winners are:

-Lamija Secerbegovic from Lynnwood High School
-Kimberlee Perez Chaparro from Edmonds-Woodway High School
