This year several islanders have applied. They appreciate your support. Scholarship recipients include Chloe Mason, Jacob Simmering, Rebecca Echeverria, Victoria Echeverria, Tessa Echeverria, Carl Schmidt, Bonnie Schmidt, Amy Schmidt, Graham Ellis, Rebecca Laursen, Heidi Laursen, Karl Smith, Debi Miller, Otto Schmidt, Katie Schmidt, Jennifer Smith, Ramona Smith, Hannah Holiday and Cassandra Deane.
