Congratulations to our Scholarship Recipients
Over the past few years, WBA has provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to many worthy recipients. Open to graduating seniors from Washington high schools with a parent or guardian employed by a WBA member bank, this WBA scholarship rewards academic achievement and community service, and allows students to pursue those post-secondary ambitions at a college, university or technical training program. We would like to congratulate this year’s 10 worthy recipients (member login required). We wish them the best of luck in their college years and wherever life takes them.
