Latino Club student receives scholarship | Community

Tiffani Carrillo received a $1,000 scholarship from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church as part of the church’s congregational outreach program.

Sandra Blackaby of St. Paul’s made the announcement at the June 2 meeting of the Walla Walla High School Latino Club.

At Wa-Hi senior, Carrillo participated in the Latino Club since freshman year and was involved in activities at the Walla Walla County Fair, setting up the book sale of the Walla Walla branch of the Association. American Women’s University and other service projects, and the Skyline Adventures/Ski Bluewood Program.

Carrillo wants to be an elementary school teacher, said Latino Club counselor Bill Erickson.

She plans to attend Walla Walla Community College and complete her education at Washington State University, Tri-Cities.

Blackaby said the scholarship is renewable for up to five years as Carrillo progresses through college. This is the second year that St. Paul’s has offered a scholarship to a member of the Wa-Hi Latino Club. Perla Olmos-Alfaro received the scholarship in 2021.
