Newcastle Running Club presents scholarships
July 3, 2012
Three high school seniors have each been awarded a $1,400 scholarship from the nonprofit Newcastle Running Club.
Awards were given to Liberty High School student Annie Trumbull, of Issaquah; Hazen High School student Priscilla Yu, of Renton; and Interlake High School student Jorge Moreno-Nunez, of Newcastle. All three students demonstrated a willingness to give back to their communities and all are college bound to further their education.
Winners were chosen based on equal parts of community involvement, grade point average, SAT or ACT test scores, financial need and an essay.
To qualify for the scholarships, the high school seniors must live in Newcastle or attend Hazen or Liberty high schools.
The $4,200 in total scholarships was made possible from proceeds resulting from the 2011 Newcastle 5K Run/Walk during Newcastle Days.
