JHS grad received almost $20,000 in scholarships…

Caleb Wiebe has received almost $20,000 in scholarships to attend Washington State University. This funding is making it possible for him to be in the first graduating class of Food Science majors with a Fermentation Science option this May. Though he also holds jobs at the WSU Creamery and local favorite Hunga Dunga Brewing Company, the scholarship funding has “helped lift the financial burden a bit,” he said.

Doing more than its fair share to ease that burden for Wiebe was the Regents Scholarship, which the Jenkins High School class of 2012 alum said he was “fortunate” to receive as it contributed $4,000 per school year for four years at WSU. Hard work contributed to that fortune, however. A high school senior is nominated for the award by a teacher who considers the student one of the two “most distinguished” seniors at a school. A formula combining grade point average and college preparation test scores is also applied. A GPA of at least 3.5 must be achieved along with a minimum SAT score of 1000 or higher or an ACT result of 19 or greater.
