Two students receive scholarships from Daughters of the Pioneers of Washington


Two scholarships were awarded by the Fort Vancouver Chapter 19 of the Daughters of the Pioneers of Washington during a Battle Ground-based event.

The “special honor tea” event, held in May, was hosted at Sweet Peas Tea Room.

Jenna Bergren, a 2021 graduate from Battle Ground High School, and Addison “Addy” Friesen, a 2021 graduate of Prairie High School, were both awarded scholarships.

Bergren and Friesen both go to Clark College and plan to transfer to four-year institutions.

Bergren hopes to become an accountant, while Friesen aims to earn a degree in communications.
