Lakewood, WA – Henderson Quinn had a surprise for everyone attending Wednesday Night’s Soup Supper. He brought along his freshly printed and signed Letter of Notification of Award signed by Governor Chris Gregoire. The $24,000 award is collectible when the 7th grader with a 3.75 grade point average graduates from high school to attend college. Henderson is the first to receive the award from our own St. Joseph-St. John Funding College Program. Currently 76 students are participating in the program. Neighborhood residents may enroll or nominate participants. A twenty five year old mother of two living in Conyers, Georgia was excited to learn of her nomination from her father living on 107th SW and has received information regarding 130 awards for which she is qualified.
