Idaho Realtors has announced its six scholarship recipients for 2020. The scholarship recipients — including two from Bonner County — are attending an Idaho college or university in the fall, and earned the awards through academics, achievement, and community service.

“Idaho Realtors is committed to making a difference in the communities that our members serve. At the heart of that commitment is supporting higher education in Idaho,” said Marion Wadsworth, Idaho Realtors President. “We are honored these scholarships will help students lay a foundation for their careers in which they can continue to serve their communities.”

The recipient of the top Idaho Realtors scholarship of $2,500 is Aleehia Valliere. Valliere is from Hope and attended Clark Fork High School, where she was class president. She will attend North Idaho College in the fall as a freshman and plans to study business with a minor in real estate. She loves the outdoors and wants to become a real estate agent so she can help people find new homes.
