Wow!  Denis and the scholarship committees from Skookum and Shelton Rotary clubs  did an outstanding job with all of the potential adversity that COVID-19 could muster.  Let me tell you both the committee and the students applying for the 2020 scholarships worked hard.  Students had to  develop and  then the committee needed to read through the applications, conduct interviews and make the final selections.  There are 29 students receiving scholarships this year.  We have posted the three videos that Denis made on our club Facebook page announcing each of the awardees.  Congratulations to all of our high school graduates and college students that have received awards in 2020.
