San Juan Island

Congratulations 2016 Scholarship Recipients

Graduation 1 2015With graduation ceremonies behind us, we close the books on a big year for the San Juan Island Service Scholarship Program. The program is designed to inspire young men and women to become active volunteers and give back to our community. This year we awarded twenty-three (yes, that number is correct) $1,000 scholarships to graduating San Juan Island seniors. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of these individuals!

In addition to congratulating the scholarship recipients, we would be remiss if we did not take this opportunity to share our appreciation and sincere thanks to all the people and organizations who make our program successful. Our scholarships are funded by generous donations from individuals that recognize the value of instilling a volunteering spirit in our youth, the local restaurants which partner in our Dining for Scholars program, and by all of YOU when you show your support by dining out at one of our Dining for Scholars events.

This year, all of these local restaurants opened their doors and hearts to our program. The portion of their profits they shared from Dining for Scholars was essential to our fundraising efforts – so thank you to: China Pearl, Blue Water Bar & Grill, Lime Kiln Café, McMillin’s at Roche Harbor, Cask & Schooner, MiCasita, Coho Restaurant, Rumor Mill, Vic’s Drive-In, Haley’s, Hungry Clam, The Market Chef, Café Demeter, and Spring Street Deli.

We wish this year’s graduates the best of luck!
