Pollanz Promise Scholarships Awarded to Middle School StudentsAlorah Murray and Hailey Fisher, Stevens Middle School eighth grade students, were awarded the promise of a $32,000 college scholarship – $8,000 per year for four years – by the family of Gladys Christopher Pollanz, provided they meet scholarship criteria and graduate from Port Angeles or Lincoln High Schools on time. 

Finalists for 2019, all eighth graders from Stevens Middle School, included Nova Onyx Raupp, Autumn Hudgins, Alorah Murray, Keely Peirce, Hailey Fisher, Deckard Vaughan, and Estrella Wasankari.

The Pollanz Promise Scholarship was first awarded in 2005 by the family of Gladys Christopher Pollanz and is presented annually by the Pollanz family and the Port Angeles Education Foundation (PAEF).  

Finalists were nominated by their teachers and the students were then invited to apply for the Promise Scholarship.  All scholarship finalists went through an interview process.  They will each be awarded $1,000 upon graduation from high school with a cumulative 3.0 GPA. They are also eligible to apply for a Pollanz scholarship their senior year.

A 3.0 grade point average throughout high school is required to receive the Promise Scholarship upon graduation, and the scholarship applies only to a four-year school.
