On May 31 Silverdale Rotarians hosted our 2018 Rotary Scholarship winning graduating seniors from three local high schools:  Klahowya Secondary School, Central Kitsap High School, and Crosspoint Academy.
 
There were 14 recipients for a total of $14,000.  A special Thank You goes to the owners of Chung's Teriyaki, who donated $4,000 for these scholarships!  
 
In addition, the Club awarded $5,000 to Matej Kunak, our 2016-17 Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Slovakia.  Matej will return to Silverdale to attend Olympic Community College. This brings the scholarship totals this year up to $19,000.
 
During the award ceremony, the student awardees who attended were asked to tell us something about themselves. What a joy it was to hear from these young people, with bright futures ahead of them!
