Several Vashon High School seniors were recently named as recipients of the 2019 Helen Miller Clancy Memorial scholarship.
Clancy was a Vashon Island resident for over 45 years and was a generous donor to a number of island nonprofits and other causes throughout her life. The scholarship in her name was established after her death in 1995.
Students selected by the Helen Miller Clancy Scholarship Foundation each year must demonstrate financial need, leadership and personal achievement.
This year, the students who received the scholarship are (from left to right) Clara Atwell ($1,000); Julia Ellison ($1,000); Sequoia Gregorich ($2,500); Mira Zike ($2,500); Ava Butler ($1,000); and Ravenna Nelson ($1,000).
These awards are single-year amounts. Lucy Boyle (pictured far right) received a $5,000 continuing scholarship that can extend through her post-graduate degrees.
The Clancy Scholarships are open to any Vashon resident graduating senior regardless of where they attend high school.
