In July, the Washington Bankers Association (WBA) announced the recipients of its Bankers’ Legacy Scholarship. Since 2008, the WBA has extended a scholarship to children of their member banks.
A Kirkland local, Brandon Soh, who goes to Juanita High School, won the scholarship through First Financial Northwest Bank.
The scholarship committee, comprised of volunteers from the WBA Education and Human Resources Committees, took on the task of choosing the final winners of the $1,000 scholarship. Soh and the other winners are listed below, along with the high school they attended and the WBA member bank their parent or guardian works for.
These students plan to attend colleges across the country, including the University of Kentucky, University of Washington, Washington State University and more. The winners were announced at the WBA & OBA 2017 Convention in Sunriver, Oregon in July.
