The Echo Kiwanis Club recently announced it awarded $1,000 scholarships to three Echo High School seniors, Annalese Barnes, Lexie Cox and Bobbie Sharp.

At the time of her application, Barnes was finishing up work on a certified nursing assistant (CNA) license and plans to continue her studies in nursing at East Texas Baptist University. As a student leader, athlete and member of the Honor Society, Barnes also is committed to community service.

Cox also is interested in pursuing a career in nursing and plans to attend Wenatchee Valley College. A four-year varsity athlete, she also has distinguished herself as a leader. While serving as a teacher’s aide, Cox has demonstrated a professional attitude and is dedicated to success.

Sharp plans to pursue further studies in agriculture communication at the University of Idaho. In addition to being a reliable teacher’s assistant in Echo’s agriculture department and serving on the 2018 Umatilla County Fair court, Sharp has held several leadership positions in school and the community.

The Echo Kiwanis has been awarding scholarship grant awards to graduating seniors to encourage their success since 2011. The program is made financially possible through Kiwanis fundraisers and the generous contributions of local individuals and businesses who enthusiastically support the success of future community leaders.
