Although Washington County remains in lockdown, scholarship season is not. On Friday, May 15, the Beaverton Family and Alumni Network (BFAN) delivered six $500 scholarships to seniors. A volunteer parent committee read the applications and chose students who best reflected Beaverton High School’s values of community, tradition, excellence, and learning. Seniors Elena Woo, Allison Mako, Brandon Hamilton, Drew Field, Luke Gayaldo, and Romie Avivi-Stuhl were all selected.
“Even in these circumstances, it was amazing to celebrate these seniors!” said BFAN member Daphne Teals. Teals’ sentiment is felt across the Beaverton community, further exemplifying the importance of its core values.
Congratulations to these exceptional students!
Elena Woo is one of the six recipients of the BFAN scholarship. She will attend Cornell University in Ithaca, New York next year.
