SEQUIM — The Sunland Homeowners Association has announced the award of $2,000 scholarships to two Sequim students.

Elizabeth Marie Sweet will use her scholarship at the University of Washington where she will study biochemistry this fall.

Sweet has interned with the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, sampling and analyzing phytoplankton to monitor biotoxins that affect shellfish.

Kaitlyn Viada will work toward an associate degree in computer science at Peninsula College this fall before transferring to a four-year university to study electrical engineering.

Viada has worked as a lifeguard at the Sequim YMCA this year.
