The Machias Elementary School Parent-Teacher Group in Snohomish, Wash., offers two scholarships to the two most deserving high school seniors who attended Machias. The two students are invited to speak at 6th grade graduation and are awarded the scholarships in front of the 6th graders. PTG leaders at Machias say that although the scholarship doesn’t directly benefit the school, the awards show the students that if they work hard, get good grades, and are involved in the community, they will be recognized.
