GRATITUDE: Chief Sealth International High School welcomes running gear, laptop gifts

Chief Sealth International High School students will benefit from two notable donations:

When we covered the first Roll Hawks 5K last weekend, a benefit for the cross-country team, we noted that pre-race remarks mentioned a big donation on the way from Brooks Running. Tonight, volunteer assistant coach Chris Hoffman tells us more about it:

The Chief Sealth Cross Country Team was awarded a Brooks Running Scholarship last night at a ceremony at MoPop. Head coach Jim McCue applied for the scholarship earlier this year and we were notified a couple weeks ago that we were one of just 25 schools in the whole country to receive a scholarship. Through the scholarship, Brooks will donate $12,000 worth of uniforms, running shoes and gear (enough for up to 30 athletes) and $2,000 in cash to be used for team expenses. Coach Jim, assistant coach Marta Wambaugh, and myself [L-R in the photo] were on hand at the ceremony last night to receive the scholarship from Brooks.

And from Sealth academic dean Lori Douglas:

Ten Chief Sealth students were the lucky recipients of laptops from Logic 20/20. Their repurposed computers were CSI students’ gain! The students applied and wrote convincing arguments about why they should be the new owners of this valuable resource. Most common response: This will REALLY help me with my school work. Thank you to Logic 20/20 for their well-received donation!

Logic 20/20 is based in SODO.

    Oh, btw the Academic Dean is Lori Douglas, not Patrick.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
