Milestone: Puget Sound Anglers bestow scholarship

The North Olympic Peninsula Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers recently donated $1,000 to the Peninsula College Foundation for student Rylee Phillips (center). Pictured here, scholarship committee members Don Hatler (left) and Karl Pohlod present Phillips with the scholarship at the group’s meeting at Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim on Nov. 16.

The annual award from the club and the Wally Pohlod Memorial Scholarship fund goes to a qualifying student who is studying natural history, fisheries or marine sciences at Peninsula College. The club donates a total of $3,000 annually for students at Peninsula College, Sequim High School and Port Angeles High School. Funds raised go to pay for the students’ tuition or other expenses.

Phillips intends to study environmental science through Peninsula College’ Western Washington University-Huxley degree program.
