PORT ORCHARD — Mackenzie Wright of Port Orchard is the recipient of the 2019 South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship.

The South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship was established by Doug Miller and South Kitsap Properties in 2018.

Miller said the application has a series of questions for the applicant to answer — one of which must be completed as a short video submission.
