Spokane, WA - For the twelfth consecutive year, Banner Bank and the Spokane Indians have teamed up to reward talented high school seniors with college scholarships. The winners of the $500 awards were announced today and include: Clara Coyote (Ferris High School), Kelton Hedstrom (Mead High School), Alicia Judd (Central Valley High School), Mason Magee (CDA Charter Academy), and Anna Payne (Cheney High School).
"Banner Bank is proud to reward these local students for their hard work," said Kirk Quillin, Banner Bank Executive Vice President. "We enjoy having the chance to help these outstanding students further their education."
The scholarships were open to any student who attended a high school in Spokane or Kootenai County and were based on achievement in four areas: scholarship, leadership, community involvement, and character.
"This was a phenomenal group of students and it was very difficult to select just five winners," said Indians Senior Vice President, Otto Klein. "The scholarship program illustrates the Spokane Indians and Banner Bank's continued commitment to education in our community."
During the 12-year partnership between Banner Bank and the Spokane Indians, 61 area students have received a total of $30,500 to help fund their college education.
