"Promise" scholarships awarded to two PA students

(Port Angeles) – Two Port Angeles eighth graders will have most of their college paid for, if the meet criteria and graduate on time.

Hannah Black and Zion Davis were awarded the promise of a $32,000 college scholarship - $8,000 per year for four years – by the family of Gladys Christopher Pollanz.

The Promise Scholarship was started in 2005 by the family of Gladys Christopher Pollanz and is awarded annually by the family and the Port Angeles Education Foundation.

Gladys Christopher Pollanz graduated from Port Angeles’ Roosevelt High School in 1923 as salutatorian of her class.  The death of her father necessitated Gladys work as a legal secretary to help support the family rather than attend college.  She worked hard through the years, investing in the stock market.  When she died in March 2003, Pollanz left one million dollars to establish a scholarship fund for high school graduates from Port Angeles to attend college.
