Teen of Character
This year’s scholarship selection was very difficult for the scholarship committee. Ultimately, the scholarship was awarded to Katherine Alvarenga of Queenstown. Among her lengthy list of accomplishments, Katherine served on the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board for two years, participated in KIHS Marching Band,
and volunteered as a church youth group leader. After graduation from Kent Island High School, Katherine plans to attend Liberty University and seek a degree in Secondary English Education. As a bilingual student, Katherine says her personal goal is to “ensure other students feel understood and accepted” and to “inspire youth and give them hope for their future.” The $500 scholarship, offered in partnership with the Centreville Rotary, was presented at KIHS’s Senior Night on May 17th.
