On Tuesday, June 19, the Scholarship Program for Women participants will gather to share a little more about themselves at John F. Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien. The women will each be asked four questions on subjects ranging from their favorite Seafair memory to an introspective look at their futures.
The Seafair Scholarship Program for Women seeks to recognize academic achievement, celebrate the diverse communities in the Seattle area, and encourage community service and philanthropy among youth. At the culmination of the program, Seafair will award over $20,000 in scholarships to the participants.
