BHS Avid Alumni Scholarship

Provided by Bremerton Schools and Alumni Foundation.

It is with great pleasure that the Bremerton High School AVID program is able to offer one or more scholarships to our AVID alumni in support of their post-high school education endeavors. As a B.H.S AVID alum, you were part of a program designed to help you “brave the wilderness” of a college education. Many, if not most, of you are the first members of your family to go through the process of college applications, financial aid, and then taking the leap to an education beyond high school. This scholarship is inspired by that leap and by the perseverance you must cultivate to continue pursuing your dreams. According to Brené Brown in her book “Braving the Wilderness,” Belonging so fully to yourself that you’re willing to stand alone is a wilderness - an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching...But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand. (36) True belonging is not passive. It’s not the belonging that comes with just joining a group. It’s not fitting in or pretending or selling out because it’s safer. It’s a practice that requires us to be vulnerable, get uncomfortable, and learn how to be present with people without sacrificing who we are. (37)
