The Highline Schools Foundation is pleased to announce we are awarding nearly $120,000 in scholarships to graduating students in Highline Public Schools this year. This is the highest amount ever offered in scholarship dollars by the Foundation. The thirteen (13) students receiving scholarships in 2016 were honored at the May 18 Highline Public Schools Board meeting at Bow Lake Elementary School. Each received special recognition and certificate of merit from Highline Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield. These scholarships are made possible by the support of Highline Schools Foundation’s generous individual donors and corporate partners.
Following the board meeting, students, their families, scholarship funders and Highline Schools Foundation Trustees celebrated at the second annual Scholarship Recognition Reception at the Puget Sound Skills Center where students in the Puget Sound Skills Center’s culinary arts program provided a wonderful dessert buffet.

A gift to Highline Schools Foundation is something much bigger than one donation – it signifies that you believe in a future where all students reach their highest potential, where all teachers can provide enriched learning experiences and where all graduates are college or career ready – and that such a future is worth fighting for.
On May 24, 2016, 16 high school senior athletes received college scholarships at the 5th annual Scholar-Athlete, Coach, and Community Recognition Banquet. The banquet honors students that shine in multi-sport athletics, academics and community service.
The Highline Schools Foundation is very proud to be part of this event honoring the best and the brightest student athletes in our district. They are shining examples of how being a focused athlete and part of a team motivates students in the classroom.

Every year, the Highline Schools Foundation grants teachers the funds they need to support unique and innovative programs in their classrooms that their school’s budget can’t provide. The Foundation is very proud to be able to help teachers out with grants for programs like this and YOU can be a part of this! All donations help.
