Don’t pass up virtually free money.

With just a little work, Coupeville High School seniors can snag a variety of college scholarships and workforce grants, and the competition for some awards remains wide open.

The Senior Parent Board is extending their application deadline until next Friday, May 14 at 2:45 PM.

Applications and essays can be dropped off with Eileen Stone in the CHS office.

First though, take a gander at the photos below for all the pertinent info.

The three scholarships are available to any Wolf planning to attend a two-year, four-year, technical, or vocational school, with the grant aimed at someone going straight to work.

All bring a crisp $500, with just a smidge of work required to be eligible.

Don’t leave money on the table.

Let it rain.

Things went digital this year, but Coupeville High School seniors still brought home an impressive collection of awards and scholarships.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic shutting down schools, the annual awards night couldn’t be held in person.

Instead, the school made a collection of video presentations, which were posted online Tuesday afternoon.

The CHS Class of 2020, led by co-Valedictorians Anna Dion and Scout Smith, and Salutatorian Lucy Sandahl, graduates Saturday.

To see who earned awards and scholarships, as well as view senior realization speeches from Avalon Renninger, Xaiviar Lee, and Zara Bradley, pop over to:

Coupeville High School seniors have two weeks left to get in the running for a $5,000 college scholarship.

The 2020 Smart Choices Scholarships are offered by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, the Dairy Farmers of Washington, and Les Schwab Tires.

The program, in its eighth go-round, honors one female and one male high school student for their achievements in athletics/activities, the community, and the classroom.

While the winners net $5,000 apiece, eight other finalists also receive $1,000 scholarships.

The deadline to apply is April 1.

Seniors need to fill out an online application and write a short essay on “How you plan to use your education to benefit others.”

Judging is based on athletic/activity excellence (35%), academic achievement (35%), leadership (15%), citizenship/community service (10%), and originality/creativity of the essay (5%).

“I have a report of incoming desserts. I’m going to need a total lock-down and all desserts brought to my office for … um … safekeeping.” (Photo by JohnsPhotos.net)

Bake a cake and help fuel a student’s education.

The Coupeville Lions Club, which gives out college aid to CHS seniors, is gearing up for its annual scholarship auction, and is looking for a few bakers to help sweeten the deal.

A key part of the auction is the Dessert Dash, and last year the Lions brought in $6,000 towards their scholarships off of the 20 desserts up for bids.

To make the event a success, the club is looking for CHS senior parents or students willing to make a dessert for the auction.

If interested, contact Diana Swisher at caddyladyl@hotmail.com or (360) 678-6215 for the specifics.

They chose different sports paths, but were remarkably similar in many other ways.

Coupeville High School seniors Lindsey Roberts and Emma Smith are standout athletes, stellar students, fond of posing for photos, and graceful, strong young women.

Now, they’re each $300 richer, thanks to receiving scholarship money from JohnsPhotos.net.

John Fisken hit the stage Tuesday during the CHS awards night to hand out the moola.

His awards, which are largely funded by photo sales, honor student/athletes at each of the schools he and his cameras haunt – CHS and Oak Harbor High School.

To be eligible, athletes had to play two sports during each of their four years of school, while maintaining a 3.0 GPA.

The winners, who wrote essays and were interviewed by Fisken, also couldn’t receive any athletic scholarship money from a college.

Smith competed in volleyball and track and field during her prep career, finishing as a team captain and First-Team All-Conference selection while unleashing knee-buckling spikes.

She helped lead Coupeville volleyball back to state during her junior season, breaking a 13-year drought, and grew into one of the most fearsome hitters to ever wear a Wolf uniform.

During her final track campaign, Smith won league, district, and bi-district titles in the shot put, and advanced to state in both the shot put and discus.

She plans to attend Montana State University in the fall and study marine biology and environmental science.

Roberts is a rare 12-time letter winner, with impressive runs in soccer, basketball, and track.

On the pitch, she smacked in 17 goals, third-best in program history, while playing primarily on the defensive side of the ball.

Lou also finished as the #18 scorer in Wolf girls basketball history, and captured eight state track meet medals, most-ever by a female CHS athlete.

She holds school records in the 100 hurdles, 4 x 100, and 4 x 200.

Roberts will attend Washington State University in the fall, majoring in design/architecture, with an emphasis on interior design and layout.
