North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers awards two $1,000 scholarships

HANSVILLE — The North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers recently announced that two deserving students, Nolan Platz and Jessica Randall, have been selected to receive $1,000 scholarships to assist in their studies in fields that will promote and protect the marine environment.

The scholarship committee consisting of Diane Quayle, Linda Golden, Sandie Sheridan, Cheryl Sachs and Steve Grether selected Platz and Randall as the 2018-19 scholarship recipients.

Platz is a 2017 graduate of Kingston High School, and he recently finished his freshman year at Santa Clara University in California, where he is hoping to combine a major in environmental science with a chemistry minor in order to work in the field of environmental toxicology.

Randall, also a graduate of Kingston High School as well as the University of Washington, has worked as a federal scientist in the Bering Sea as part of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center and recently completed a policy internship in Nova Scotia. Randall recently began work on her Master’s of Science in fisheries science and technology at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
