Five UCA Seniors Named as Spokane Scholars

Upper Columbia Academy was pleased to participate again this year in the Spokane Scholars Banquet, an event put on by area businesses and executives to honor and encourage academic excellence.

Every spring, local high schools are invited to send one outstanding senior from each academic discipline to a banquet held in their honor at the Spokane Convention Center. The students are 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 in a banquet hall filled with other young people who have chosen to excel.

Another high point of the event is the privilege of hearing prestigious speakers. This year's speaker was Dr. Jack Bacon, a member of the management team overseeing the construction and operation of the International Space Station.
