UCA Students Selected as Spokane Scholars
Each year a significant number of Spokane-area businesses and executives join together to honor scholastic excellence. They invite area high schools to send their top seniors in each of several categories to a banquet held in their honor at the Spokane Convention Center. Spokane Scholars are each presented with a certificate and medallion, and some are given scholarships.
Beyond receiving this honor, the students love being a part of the special excitement and energy they find being in a banquet hall full of other young people who have chosen to excel.
Another high point of this annual event is the privilege of hearing prestigious speakers. This year they heard from Herb Delaney of Washington State University, who gave a fascinating presentation on the Neptune Project, which involves wiring the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, especially the Pacific Rim, in order to study earthquake activity, faults and volcanoes.
