The Bellevue business community understands that an excellent education supports our future workforce and to recognize outstanding students the Bellevue Chamber Foundation, with community partners who support education, has awarded $5,000 in scholarships to Bellevue School District college bound seniors:

• Manoj Simha, Interlake High School, KeyBank Scholarship

• Valerie Tse, Interlake High School, M. Gail Ryder Scholarship

• DJ Wulah, Bellevue High School, Ralph James Family Memorial Scholarship

The scholarship award presentation will take place at the Bellevue Chamber Business Lunch: Safeco Field and the New Fan Experience on July 19 12 to 1:30 p.m. at the Westin Bellevue, 600 Bellevue Way NE.

Fred Rivera, Seattle Mariners EVP of Legal and Government Affairs and general counsel, will share what the Seattle Mariners organization is doing to ensure Safeco Field continues to excite fans and bring them out to the ballpark now, and over the next quarter century. Reservations are required and can be made online at www.bellevuechamber.org or by calling (425) 454-2464.

The Bellevue Chamber serves as the voice of business on the Eastside, representing thousands of jobs in our community. Education is one of the priority issues for the Bellevue Chamber as we work to forge strategic alliances among the education and business communities. The Chamber has established a separate Foundation to fund these programs. The Bellevue Chamber Foundation awards college scholarships and student enterprises through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.
