The Soroptimist High School Scholarship program was able to award $7,000 to three graduating seniors this year. Soroptimists awarded two $2,000 awards and one $3,000 award. The award winners are Felicitas (Magaly) Aguayo, Trinity Cullen and Ayla Ridwan.
Magaly is studying Early Childhood Education at Whatcom Community College and will transfer to a four-year school and study to become an elementary school teacher. She has a passion to pursue her dreams and meet her goals in life.
Trinity will attend the University of Arizona in Tucson to earn a business degree with a focus on Marketing. She owns her own online sticker business and is looking forward to expanding her design skills as well as pursuing a business career.
Ayla will study either Human Biology or environmental studies, or both, at Stanford University, and pursue a career in medicine or focus on climate change and its effects on our world. She wants her goals to focus on benefitting the lives of others.
These awards were made possible due to the generosity of community members and local businesses who support Soroptimist fundraising projects. Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor is the local club of a worldwide service organization whose mission is to improve the lives of women and girls. In Friday Harbor, Soroptimists raise and donate more than $40,000 and thousands of volunteer hours each year to community projects.
