  • Rotary Club of KentRotarians have served the greater Kent Community since 1958.  For more than 40 years, Kent Rotary has awarded scholarships to graduates of the Kent School District, both for academic achievement and for pursuit of career and technical education.  This year’s international theme for Rotary is “Be the Inspiration”.  
  • Kent Sunrise Rotary believes that investing in our community’s youth is a paramount responsibility.  Developing a service-above-self mindset begins early life, and the Rotary ethic of selflessness drives all that happens in Rotary.  Sunrise Rotary Club has provided, since 2008, scholarships for students pursuing an education in a two or four year vocational/technical program (welder, electrician, nurses aid, ultrasound or X-ray technician, equipment operators, etc.).  In honor of the life and dedication of long-time Kent Sunrise Rotary member Marge Williams, Kent Sunrise Rotary has reformulated our annual scholarship to be the “Marge Williams Memorial Scholarship” designated for a student seeking vocation/technical education.
  • Kent Area PTSA Council’s mission is to provide leadership development, information and community services to the local PTA leaders at PTA’s in Kent School District schools, so we can collectively support the education and well-being of every child in the district.
  • Valley Girls & Guys – was originally formed in 2007 by Tina McDonough as a 3-Day walking team to raise money and to support the Susan G. Komen 3-day Walk for a Cure, in honor of her friend, Michelle. The group is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
    Valley Girls & Guys has now expanded their efforts to all cancers and has recently transitioned to lavender for “all cancers.”
    Valley Girls and Guys are actively raising money year round to not only fight cancer, but to help patients and their families during treatment. We are changing and saving lives EVERY DAY!
  • Emiko Craig Scholarship  –The Kent Schools Foundation administers the Emiko Craig Scholarship.  Emiko Craig was a local resident who over the years enjoyed attending plays and concerts at Kent School District schools.  In her memory, her estate desired to create the “Emiko Craig Scholarship” to recognize graduating students who look to continue their education and training in the arts (broadly defined to include performing arts, fine arts, music, literature, film, television, drawing, painting, sculpture, vocal/instrumental music, industrial and technical arts, etc.).  Up to four (4), $2,500 scholarships are awarded annually.
