Dear Sam,

We inadvertently left Sam Walker out of the 2022 ceremony, along with the donors who have awarded him scholarships. Let us pay tribute:

If you attend VHS you can’t miss the tall guy who plays on and has been captain of half its sports teams.  Sam Walker is that guy.  His academic record shows he is great in every subject but it is history that he most enjoys and factors into a desire to study it or political science in college. Outside of school, the important elements in Sam’s life are his family, animals, playing piano, anything outdoors and travel.  But a lot of things come back to sports for Sam.  He has volunteered countless hours for youth baseball so others can engage in a game he loves. Sam, your activities, drive and desire to understand the connections between the past and the future are richer because you are a person who values treating others with kindness.  We applaud you.  Congratulations on receiving the Harbor School Board of Trustees, Vashon Heritage Museum, and Vashon Youth Baseball & Softball Scholarships.



SINCE 1986

Vashon Community Scholarship Foundation is a unique local effort to encourage graduating seniors to continue education and training after high school.  Thanks to our volunteer board, thousands of generous donors, and engaged community members, VCSF has raised more than $2.5 million to support the dreams of students over the last 36 years.

Every single student who submits an application notebook is awarded a scholarship and at the annual ceremony hears a spoken tribute to their individual journey and honored place in our community.


"I will be forever proud to have grown up in the Vashon Community and this scholarship is one reason why."
