The Highline High School Alumni Foundation recently awarded $95,000 in scholarships to 25 graduating Pirate seniors and two college students.

The organization has awarded some $1.6 million in scholarships.

Said Highline High School Principal Clint Sallee:

“Over my give years at Highline High School, I have come to deeply appreciate that Highline High School is truly blessed to have such an involved and supportive Alumni Foundation. As costs rise, access to scholarship support can be a critical part of making colleges and universities accessible to Highline graduates. I have been taken aback every year by the impressive amount of financial support the Highline High School’s Alumni Foundation provides for our deserving students.

“Of course, my appreciation of Highline’s Alumni Foundation extends beyond the financial support it provides. The Alumni Foundation is a relentless cheerleader and advocate for Highline High School’s past, present, and future. The vibrancy of the Alumni Foundation is a testament to the profoundly special nature of Highline High School. I am truly honored to be Highline High School’s Principal and feel so privileged to be able to work with the Alumni Foundation.”
