Kiwanis Club scholarships announced May 31

Scholarships totaling more than $20,000 will be awarded to graduating South Kitsap High seniors.

PORT ORCHARD — The Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard will award more than $20,000 from between seven and nine scholarships this year to support graduating students from South Kitsap School District.

The scholarships will be presented to selected students at Laurels Night May 31 at South Kitsap High School.

Applications for Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard scholarships were open to graduating seniors who reside within the boundaries of the South Kitsap School District and plan to attend college, technical or trade school. The applications have been evaluated on a variety of factors, including community service, civic involvement and future career path. The application evaluation was not limited to academic achievement. The deadline for applications was in April.

The Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard has awarded scholarships to South Kitsap students for more than 30 years. Organizers said the award endowment grows each year with the help of donations made to the scholarship fund by community members. The club’s annual dinner auction also supports the scholarship fund. The auction for 2018 is scheduled for Oct. 13 at McCormick Woods.
