On Thursday, June 2, 2022, Cedarcrest High School held its annual Senior Awards Night ceremony at the Riverview ESC in Duvall. The ceremony was the first in-person Senior Awards Night event held since 2019, as the COVID-19 pandemic caused the event to be a pre-recorded, virtual event the last two years.
Cedarcrest’s Administrative Team hosted the event, with Principal Ray LaBate sharing opening remarks, reflecting on how resilient the Class of 2022 has been through all the challenges of the last couple of years. Assistant Principal Mike Ruhland, Assistant Principal/Athletic Director Jason Frederick, and Assistant Principal/Director of CTE Scott Petersen, joined Mr. LaBate in emceeing the event, as students accepted awards in recognition of accomplishments in academics, athletics, student leadership, and community service.
By the end of the evening, 55 financial scholarships were awarded in the program’s opening portion, with the scholarship process managed by the Snoqualmie Valley Dollars for Scholars.
In its seventh year, the Ann Hart Foundation Scholarship for Women Pursuing Careers in Natural Sciences recognized three students who seek to follow a career in science and/or science-related education. The foundation’s $10,000 scholarship was awarded to Zoe Masuga. $5,000 scholarships were each awarded to Sonja Blycker and Jasmine Bodis.
Two new scholarships were presented in honor of two former Cedarcrest students who recently passed away.
The Alex Enciso Navarro Compass Award Scholarship was awarded to Noah Mallory, in honor of Enciso Navarro, who passed away in the spring of 2021. Mallory received a $3,000 scholarship.
The Jennifer Martin Memorial Female Science Scholarship was awarded to Malia Swingle. The scholarship was presented in honor of Martin, a 2018 Cedarcrest graduate who passed away in the fall of 2021. Swingle was awarded a $1,100 scholarship.
Snoqualmie Valley Dollars for Scholars awarded scholarships to 10 seniors this year. The recipient names are provided below.
In addition to Scholarship Awards, students were also presented with Honor, Merit, and Leadership Awards, as well as individual departmental awards, recognizing students who were exemplary in those chosen areas of study.
At the local level, community sponsors graciously donated $57,492 through their scholarship programs.
