Dr. Robert Mandich Scholarship
Bob Mandich graduated from Hoquiam High School as the Valedictorian in the class of 1957.
He received a $750 scholarship for four years which he used to attend the University of Washington. Without this scholarship he would not have been able to attend college at all.
Upon graduation from the University of Washington, he entered Dental school and had a rewarding career as a dentist.
Now retired, Dr. Mandich wanted to provide an opportunity to attend college for another outstanding Hoquiam High School graduate. Therefore, he established the Dr. Robert Mandich Scholarship Fund at the Grays Harbor Community Foundation in the fall of 2004.
This scholarship is for $6,250 per year for four years, for a total of $25,000 to a four year institution in any field of study.
