The 1981 Legislature created the Washington Scholars program to honor the accomplishments of the most exemplary high school seniors graduating in Washington each year. The award represents the highest meritorious academic honor conferred on these young residents by the state’s government and education leaders. High school principals were encouraged to nominate the top one percent of their graduating senior classes for Washington Scholars recognition on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. Historically, designation has been limited to three Scholars and one alternate in each of the state’s 49 legislative districts. This year recognition has been extended to all eligible students nominated by their high school principals.

Dr. Art Jarvis, Interim Superintendent for the Shelton School District, has accepted a similar position with the Renton School District for the coming school year, 2015-2016.
