PORT ORCHARD — Graduating South Kitsap High senior Regina Obnial is the recipient of the fifth annual South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship award.

The scholarship was presented to Obnial on May 18 by Doug Miller, a Realtor and owner of South Kitsap Properties.

The senior created a video for submission on the concept of being “grateful” as a student. She is graduating with honors and is scheduled to attend Yale in the fall.

“When COVID changed things during my sophomore year, I realized now as a senior that I should have spent more time being grateful for the things I have,” Obnial said. “Being grateful for being part of the community that I’m in, and for just about every moment of every day, because it goes by so quickly.”

Miller of South Kitsap Properties said he is excited for the scholarship recipient.

“Regina is an awesome student and an even better person,” he said. “Her classmates, teammates and just everyone that seems to know Regina, speak so highly of her. Her video submission was sincere and definitely hit me as a parent of teens, too.”

This is the fifth year for the annual South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship program, said Miller, who established it in 2018. The application has a series of questions, one of which must be completed as a short video submission. The $2,000 scholarship award can be used toward all continuing education options, including four-year universities, community colleges and trade schools.

The scholarship is available to all graduating South Kitsap School District seniors from South Kitsap High, Discovery High and Explorer Academy.
