Edmonds School District honors 16 senior scholar-athletes

For the past 18 years, the Edmonds School District each spring has honored its top scholar athletes with a banquet and presentation of scholarship awards. While the ceremony was unable to be held this  year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the district was able to honor 16 high school seniors, presenting them with $20,000 in scholarship money.
According to District Athletic Director Julie Stroncek, each athlete received a scholarship in the amount of $1,250 donated by community sponsors, coaches and school booster clubs.
“In lieu of a banquet this year, we have, or will visit the homes of all 16 honorees,” Stroncek said. “Each school had a few coaches, teachers or administrators meet at each of their homes where we presented their awards in cul-de-sacs and front yards.  It was great to see all of them and celebrate their successes. All who joined us enjoyed doing something celebratory with these students and their families.”
