The International District Rotary Club has awarded Lisa Khuu with a Rotary college scholarship, which she will use to attend the University of Washington with a pre-medicine major. Khuu is currently a student at West Seattle High School, where she has a 3.9 GPA. Her professional goal is to help find cures for diseases. She was the “perfect candidate” for the scholarship, said her adviser, because “she combines academic excellence and a passion to help others with financial need.” (end)
