Since starting its scholarship program in 2009, Readers Theatre Plus has given out $19,000 in scholarship money. Scholarship winners express an interest in continuing their education in some field related to the arts; each of this year’s students receives a scholarship of $800.

Sequim High School scholarship recipients are Alexas Besand, Sarah Necco and Ciara Westhaven.

Port Angeles High School seniors scholarship recipients are Robert Stephen Simpson and Megan Leigh Mundy and Kendra Anne Harvey not pictured.

Because Readers Theatre Plus has support in both Sequim and Port Angeles and produces shows for nonprofit organizations from both communities, RT+ scholarships are awarded equally to graduates from each high school.

“It is a generous community, including fellow board members, volunteers on the stage and behind the scenes, cooperation with other arts groups and such supportive audiences, that allow us to continue these awards,” Swarbrick Dries said.
