In a commendable act of community support, the Snoqualmie Firefighters Association awarded scholarships to two deserving 2023 Mount Si High School graduates, Lauren Kremer and Anna Findlay.
Each student received $1,500 to aid their higher education pursuits. Kremer is set to attend Whitworth University, while Findlay has chosen UCLA for her academic journey.
Josh Demetrescu from the Snoqualmie Firefighters Association Scholarship Committee expressed his pride, stating, “The Snoqualmie Firefighters Association would like to congratulate both scholarship winners for their hard work and dedication. We wish them success in their upcoming journeys.”
The association diligently raises funds for these scholarships every year, primarily through their popular annual Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction. The scholarship program aims to assist local students venturing into college, especially those who wish to pursue degrees in fire science, medicine or related fields, and police or criminal justice.
Vice President of the Snoqualmie Firefighters Association, Cat Cotton, thanked the community: “We would like to express our gratitude for the continued support the association receives from the Snoqualmie community, which makes these scholarships possible.”
The Snoqualmie Firefighters Association, a non-profit entity, consists of career firefighters, volunteer firefighters, and emergency medical technicians (EMTs).
The association not only extends financial support through scholarships but also aids the Snoqualmie Fire Department fulfill its goals. This includes supporting special equipment requests and participating in various community events, educational programs, and outreach activities.
