Pioneer group awards scholarships

A pair of Sequim High grads-to-be are getting a boost from local pioneer families.

The two graduating Sequim High School student, Kaylee Dunlap and Alexis Ann Smith, are recipients of the annual Pioneer Committee Scholarships. Each will be receiving a total of $2,000 for their impressive academic and activity accomplishments.

Normally these scholarships are awarded at the annual Pioneer Dinner; however, because this year’s Sequim Irrigation Festival was postponed (set at press time for October), the organization sought to acknowledge the recipients.

“They will be presented in a timely fashion to accommodate their academic needs and requirements,” pioneer organization member Neil Clayton said last week.
