The Columbia River Fellowship for Peace is offering scholarships to local high school seniors at Hood River Valley High School and Columbia High School in White Salmon.
The scholarship has been renamed in honor of CRFP youth member, the late Susanna Blake Gabay of Mosier. Susanna was the recipient of the first CRFP Youth Activist Award for her peace and justice actions throughout her young life.
Students must be planning studies in peace and justice. Seniors should contact their counselor for more information.
