The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island awarded the 2018 Rotary Scholarships at a recent club meeting at Wing Point Country Club.

A total of 13 scholarships were awarded to Bainbridge High School seniors and island residents.

The Rotary Club has a long history of awarding scholarships dating back to 1957. Two types of scholarships were awarded: Community Service Scholarships that recognize high school seniors for their community service and Career/Technical Scholarships to Bainbridge residents who are pursuing a specific career goal.

“We had another outstanding group of 29 applicants for the Community Service Scholarships this year. We are proud of the achievements of all of the applicants,” said Scholarship Committee Chairwoman Christy Givans. “It is always difficult to select our scholarship recipients.”

Community Service Scholarship recipients for 2018 are Jennifer Allen

Rose Bandrowski, Mallory Browne, Emma Gace, Jack Rusher, Anna Scott, Stella Streufert, Kathryn Wangthamkua, Max Weber and Olivia Zacharia.

Career/Technical Scholarship recipients are Toni Konig, Bryn Morgan-Ness and Joe Talavera.

For the first time, one of the Community Service Scholarship recipients, Max Weber, was recognized as the Jay Mitchell Memorial Scholar.

The Jay Mitchell Memorial Scholar is named for longtime Rotarian Jay Mitchell, member of the club’s Scholarship Committee for many years, who passed away this past year.

In the last 10 years, the Rotary Club has awarded 101 Community Service Scholarships and 13 Career/Technical Scholarships.
