In their own words…

To the Classes of 2018 at Mercer Island and Rainier Beach High Schools, a hearty Congratulations–you made it!

We recognized our 2018 scholars at Mercer Island High’s senior breakfast, Arwa Mokdad and Sophie Poole, and are about to recognize those from Rainier Beach High School at their senior breakfast, Michelle King and Gabriela Lopez. We don’t have to tell you how inspiring they are–see the videos below of the short speeches that several of our scholars gave at our Award Ceremony last April, and you too will be inspired too!
