Duque and Eaglin awarded Maynard Lundberg scholarships

Foundation honors South Kitsap High scholars and athletes

PORT ORCHARD — Lanah Duque and Xavier Eaglin have been awarded $4,000 scholarships by the Maynard Lundberg Education Foundation.

The South Kitsap High School seniors were awarded the scholarships, established by the Port Orchard Rotary to honor Maynard Lundberg, an icon of the school and the South Kitsap community.

“We established the criteria for this scholarship based upon the characteristics displayed by Maynard in both his words and actions: dedication, courage, honesty, school spirit, athletic involvement and sense of community,” said Bill Evans, executive director of the Maynard Lundberg Foundation. ”Maynard would be proud of this year’s recipients.”

Duque and Eaglin were active in their respective sports of volleyball and wrestling. They also were academic high achievers; Duque compiled a 3.97 and Eaglin a 3.99 GPA.

Thirty-eight years ago, the first scholarships of $500 each were awarded to a senior boy and girl.

Charitable donations can be made to the foundation, Evans said. For more information, call him at 360-981-4026.
