Chapter AI of Polson PEO (Philanthropic Education Organization for women) presented a bouquet of Marguerite daisies and a certificate of achievement to two AI Memorial Scholarship winners during Senior Decision Day, May 20 at Polson High School. Isabel Seeley and Hannah Simpson were each awarded a $1,000 academic scholarship.

The Chapter AI Memorial Scholarship recognizes young women's strengths in the following areas: leadership, academic excellence, writing skills and community service. The chapter looks for well-rounded and goal-oriented young women. 

Isabel will attend Cornell University and study Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Hannah plans to attend Montana State University and study Elementary Education. Both young women received high honors: Isabel (valedictorian, National Honor Society), Hannah (Magna Cum Laude, AP Merit distinctions). 

Both girls excelled in writing skills, were well-rounded in extra-curricular activities, and served as community volunteers. Hannah mentored middle school students, Little Pirates, and second/third grade students. Isabel volunteers at the Aquatic Center, served as a PHS Link Leader, and plans to travel to Costa Rica this summer to work in environmental conservation.

Chapter AI is pleased to recognize and honor these two strong, exceptional young women and regards each of them is a shining star.
