2021 Impact Scholarship Winners Annouced
Congratulations to Juli, Hannah, and Andriana on receiving Issaquah Schools Foundation Impact Scholarships this year! Showing their passion for how the Foundation funded programs of Robotics, Great Careers, and Cultural Bridges affected them, they openly articulated their wishes for continuing their education. The Foundation is excited to help these 3 students with their future endeavors.
Juli Malit is a junior at Liberty and loves the robotics program, along with the opportunity it brings to mentor younger students at Briarwood in their First Lego League robotics program.
“Through my time on Liberty Robotics, I’ve come to realize that there is magic that lies not only in the sheer act of creation, but in the realization that our talents are applicable to a world greater than ourselves – that we may be a source of inspiration for others, too.” After High School, Juli wants to study architectural engineering.
Hannah Feinsilber is a senior at Gibson Ek and shared what a wonderful impact the Great Careers Conference had on her.
“The Great Careers Conference completely changed my life and I will forever be grateful for it steering me in the right direction.” Hannah has also worked to destigmatize mental health issues and offer lessons related to peer pressure and coping mechanisms.
After high school, Hannah plans to attend a 4-year university to study business as her dream is to have her own business one day.
Adriana Hernandez is a senior at Issaquah High School and has been greatly impacted by the Cultural Bridges program where the events helped her understand the school system and offered her the opportunity to help others as well. “Through the Issaquah Schools Foundation program, I was able to learn leadership, teamwork, organization, and many other skills - while also meeting new friends, role models, and mentors who would constantly give me advice and teach me new things.” Adriana plans to attend a 4-year college and study computer engineering.
