Montesano and Ocosta High School seniors honored
One hundred ninety-six Washington high school seniors have been honored as
Washington Scholars or alternates in recognition of their academic achievements, leadership, and community service.
The Higher Education Coordinating Board annually honors the accomplishments of three high school seniors from each of the state’s 49 legislative districts – a total of 147 students. An alternate also is designated from each district.
Locally Montesano High School senior Julia Meier was recognized for Engineering and Jennifer Joe of Ocosta High School for Business Administration.
“The Washington Scholar designation is one of the most significant honors a student can receive in high school and it places them in a very select group of highly accomplished young people,”
said HECB Executive Director Don Bennett.
Washington Scholar candidates represent the top 1 percent of graduating seniors.
The list of Washington Scholars and Alternates is available on the HECB website at
