Rotary Club of Milwaukie Foundation members presented this year's $5,000 Howard Anderson/Tim DeShields Scholarship to Milwaukie High School's Jenna Stein.
While earning her diploma from MHS, Stein has excelled academically (National Honor Society, Math Club), in extracurricular activities (varsity soccer/tennis, student government, wind ensemble) and through a variety of community service pursuits (Habitat For Humanity, Relay For Life, NW Outdoor School counselor, City of Milwaukie Youth Advisory Council, Lions Club volunteer).
"Jenna has somehow also found time to work part-time to help save and pay for her college expenses" said Milwaukie Rotary Foundation Treasurer Joel Bergman.
Stein plans on attending the University of Colorado-Boulder to study engineering.
"I want to combine infrastructure and sustainable design so that humans and nature can coexist peacefully," she said.
Stein was one of seven candidates who applied for this year's scholarship. If you would like to find out more about the Rotary Club of Milwaukie and its scholarship, visit milwaukierotary.org.
