Chief Sealth International High School student Katherine Fry was honored at the Woodland Park Zoo‘s first-ever Thrive Leadership Awards dinner on Tuesday night. Not only did she receive the Youth Conservation Award, she also received a $5,000 scholarship. Fry was honored, the zoo says, “for contributing nearly 800 hours of volunteer service and providing leadership in the zoo’s youth programs including ZooCorps, Seattle Youth Climate Action Network, and Citizen Science Amphibian Monitoring.” She’s going to Western Washington University this fall, planning to study biology and environmental science.

    Katherine it has been an honor and delight to watch you grow into an amazing young woman who contributes to the world in meaningful ways. I am excited for you that college is in the near future for you. Selfishly I am sad that I won’t see as much of your at Westside. What a blessing you are!

Sorry, comment time is over.
