    Would they take an application from a student in Sumner?

      In case he doesn’t see this immediately, e-mail the Rotary’s publicity chair, Dave:

    Hi Ken,
    Our aim is to provide scholarships, and of course our focus is West Seattle, but if we don’t get enough response, we would rather award to someone than no one. You also might contact your local Rotary as Education is one of our national avenues of service.

Sorry, comment time is over.
