Jim McGinnis Scholarship for KM Grads

(Previously known as the Friends of KM Scholarship)

This scholarship is in honor of the dedication, mentorship and leadership of long-time board member Jim McGinnis.  Jim spent over 20 years supporting the Kent Community Foundation as president, secretary, vice president, scholarship chair and most recently as a mentor to our board.

This scholarship started as the Friends of Kent Meridian High School Scholarship and was created in 2010 by a group of Kent-Meridian High School Alumni and supporters, including Jim McGinnis, to allow students from Kent-Meridian HS the opportunity to attend college, who might not otherwise be able to financially afford it. 

— One or more scholarships will be awarded each year.

— Applicants will be graduates of Kent-Meridian High School.

— Applications plan to attend a 2- or 4-year college or university
