Three Barlow High School graduates accepted $1,000 scholarships from Gresham Breakfast Lions Club on Thursday, June 16, at the M&M Restaurant & Lounge.
Hanna Gibson, Trinity Bowman and Morgan MaCalevy were awarded the scholarship.
Each student plans to continue their education after high school. Gibson will attend the University of Oregon where she will study architectural design.
Bowman will use her scholarship to attend Portland Community College in the fall to get her prerequisites before moving on to get her bachelor's degree in nursing.
MaCalevy is planning to learn more about welding, a skill they learned to love at Barlow High School, at the Union UA Local 290.
Recipients of the scholarship can use the funds for any aspect of their secondary education, not just tuition.
