I had the real pleasure to interview Tanner Perry of Snohomish High School and Kendall Todd of Odessa High School on Tuesday as they were announced as the recipients of the first annual Smart Choices Scholarship by the WIAA, Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab.
Both Tanner and Kendall receive a $5,000 scholarship to the school of their choice. Kendall will head to Whitworth University to study physical therapy and Tanner is headed to PLU, where he plans to pursue a career in special education.
To say the least, these are perhaps the two most impressive high school students I've ever talked to. Both make you feel like you need to do more in your community...truly inspiring.
