Helping make dreams come true

From Point Roberts Dollars for Scholars to the Colton Education Foundation in Whitman County, business and community leaders across Washington have long supported Dollars for Scholars scholarships to help talented students pursue their college dreams.

Rep. Cindy Ryu knows how much Dollars for Scholars can mean to deserving students.  In addition to representing the 32nd District in the people’s House, Cindy is a past President and current board member of both the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce and Shoreline Dollars for Scholars. She recently joined other leaders of the Shoreline Chamber and Dollars for Scholars to award 11 new scholarships during a celebration at Shoreline Community College.

The Shoreline Dollars for Scholars program has awarded scholarships to more than 160 students over the past 9 years. That’s a lot of dreams come true!
