Lake Stevens student wins scholarship

Madisen Cordell, a student at Lake Stevens High School, was named a Pacific Lutheran University President’s Scholar and awarded a scholarship of $30,000 per year.

Cordell is one of 123 students selected for the scholarship based on accomplishments in academic achievement, community engagement and co-curricular leadership.

“These students embody what it means to be a Lute,” said PLU President Allan Belton. “They are already working toward leading lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership and care. I am excited to see how PLU can guide them toward a vocation that will allow them to use those skills to make an impact.”
