Applications sought for Feiro Family Scholarship

PORT ANGELES — The Feiro Marine Life Center has opened applications for a $1,000 scholarship to support a Clallam County senior planning to attend higher education in 2018-19.

The scholarship is open to any high school senior (including home school equivalent) in Clallam County. Applications must be submitted at www.thewashboard.org by Jan. 15.

The scholarship is made possible by private donations to the Feiro Family Scholarship fund, which was started in honor of Art Feiro, one of the founders of the center and a Port Angeles educator and coach.

Applicants are selected on basis of a personal connection to the center’s mission: Feiro Marine Life Center contributes to a strong community by providing local marine and watershed learning experiences, inspiring all to act on behalf of the environment.

The scholarship winner will be presented the award at the annual Fish on the Fence gala on Saturday, Feb. 10.

Tickets are now also on sale for the gala at www.feiromarinelifecenter.org/fotf.
