Several folks on the Island deserve them.

First, to the Mercer Island Schools Foundation and the PTA for raising $850,000. This more than makes up for the loss of funding by the state. Nice work bridging the gap!

Second, to Mercer Island Quarterback Jeff Lindquist who was named to the “Super 7” list, which means he gets to go to Hawaii and play with some Hall of Famers.

And to Kela Harrington of Islander Middle School, who made it to the 3rd round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, which means she can probably spell inchoate and ersatz.

And finally, to the VFW Keewaydin Clubhouse, which got a $5,000 grant for preservation from Americans Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Go get that new roof!
