The Royal Esquire Club (REC) recently awarded a $500.00 scholarship from the Bertram Williams Scholarship Fund to Shanteria Wright. Wright, a 2013 graduate of Renton High School, is the Daughter of Shelton Wright Sr., who is the Chairman of the Board of the Directors for the Royal Esquires’ Club, Inc. In the fall, Ms. Wright will attend the University of Washington – Tacoma Campus to pursue a degree in Nursing.
The REC manages three scholarships: Bertram C. Williams Education Scholarship Fund for general education majors; funds donated by the Woody Woodhouse Music Foundation for music majors; and a fund established for deceased REC member Skip Finley that was donated by his widow Robin Finley for aerospace engineering and computer science majors. In addition, the REC receives private donations from local organizations like The Original Seattle Steppers and the Old Riders Club, as well as individual donations in support of these scholarships.
The Royal Esquire Club continues to celebrate serving the community for over sixty years; and with the public and our support for our students, the Royal Esquire Club’s theme continues to be that we are ‘More Than a Night Club’.
