Liberty grads get scholarships

The Maple Hills Marlins Swim Team Board awarded four scholarships in August to four college-bound graduates from Liberty High School who have been longtime summer swim team members.

The 2010 scholarship award winners are Hannah Blue ($500), Austin Briggs ($500), Dooley Brown ($250) and David Lowry ($250).

Blue and Brown are headed to Washington State University in the fall. Briggs will attend the University of Washington. Lowry is going to Western Washington University.

To be considered for the scholarship award, graduated seniors who swam this season completed an application, which was scored blind according to an established matrix. Years on the team, contributions to the team, responses to essay questions, and grade point average were all factors in the selection. Funding for the scholarships comes from team fundraising efforts.

Providence Point residents support local charities
