Since 1993, the Spokane Scholars Foundation has recognized excellence in academic performance by the area's high school seniors by providing an annual venue for the community to bring these superstar scholars together to a public banquet to praise them for their achievements in the classroom.
The Spokane Scholars Foundation was created by a group of Spokane professional and business people who felt that academic excellence within Spokane county was not receiving appropriate recognition by the community. Publicity seemed reserved for all activities other than pure academic achievement. It was time to stand up and cheer for scholarly efforts.
