CHIMACUM — The Chimacum High School class of 2001 has a bright future, judging from its ability to capture scholarships.
The $243,000 value of Jason McKay’s Naval Academy scholarship skews the total, of course, but even without that figured into the mix, the Cowboys of the first class of the new millennium have piled up an impressive $273,000, including $42,000 from local businesses and organizations.
“We’re a competitive class and we all worked hard,” said Rob Lovato of Nordland. “We’ve been so ever since kindergarten. It didn’t surprise me at all because we’ve always been a high-achieving class.”
Port Hadlock senior McKay outshines them all but the senior class can also boast Lovato’s Enhancement Scholarship, $13,000 per year to attend the University of Washington.Full details appear in today’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale through Clallam and Jefferson Counties.
