Student club first to receive WSF grant
The Washougal High School Readers Club and the school library were the recipients of a $1,000 Creative Classroom grant from the Washougal Schools Foundation.
Junior Kristan Poissonnier and a team of Readers Club officers, including seniors Troy McConnaughey, Rickie Ludlow, Stacy Bradley, Andrea Miller and sophomore Cameron Holmes, led the effort.
The students collectively wrote and were awarded the grant, which enabled them to purchase library books.
According to Boyd Hemminger of the grants committee, it is the first time a group of students has submitted a grant application to the Washougal Schools Foundation.
