The Spokane Scholars Foundation has as its goal the public recognition of academic excellence among the region’s high school seniors.  The Spokane Scholars Foundation was created by a group of Spokane professional and business people who observed that academic excellence within Spokane county was not receiving appropriate recognition by the community.  Publicity seemed reserved for all activities other than pure academic achievement.  

Since 1993, the Spokane Scholars Foundation has recognized excellence in academic performance by our regions’ high school seniors by providing an annual venue for the community to bring these superstar scholars together to a public banquet to praise them for their achievements in the classroom.  Since that first year, the Spokane Scholars Foundation has recognized over 3500 scholars, selected more than 500 Award Recipients, and distributed more than 1.5 million dollars in cash awards and matches.

Northwest Christian has chosen the top academic students in each of these subjects area:  English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, World Languages and Fine Arts.  Each of these students is awarded the honor of being designated a Spokane Scholar and will be honored at a banquet honoring all area nominees on Monday, April 20 at the Spokane Convention Center.

We are proud to announce the following students as the Spokane Scholars representing Northwest  Christian Schools:

English: Grant Branstetter

Mathematics: Darius Carrozzo

Science: Shailin Haffner

Social Studies: Jacob Atkins

World Languages: Dawon Yu

Fine Arts: Zachary Zwanzig
