Albert Haller Foundation names 2020 scholarship recipients

The Albert Haller Foundation last week announced the recipients of the organization’s 2020 scholarship recipients, with $98,500 bestowed on 13 graduating high school seniors in Clallam County.

Five graduates-to-be from Sequim and Port Angeles, along with one from Crescent and one from Forks, received $8,000 each. Also awarded was a $2,500 George Peabody Scholarship funded by Lakeside Industries and administered by the foundation.

In keeping with Haller’s wishes that scholarships be awarded to those most in need, the foundation’s scholarship committee selected recipients not based on highest grade-point average and achievement but those deemed to be “putting forth good effort an in need of a helping hand,” foundation representatives said last week.

Scholarship recipients include:

Sequim — Samantha Church, Kyle Desumma, Zen Graham, Abbee Jaegger, Kimberly Perez

Port Angeles — Areeb Atlaf, Fiona Coleman, Addison Holland, Jacob Thrush, Alexus Yeater

Crescent — Caleb Green

Forks — Marty Vasquez

George Peabody Scholarship — Patrick Tennesson (Sequim).
