Today will be a very special day for one Bend High student; and a proud day for Bend High.

 

Senior Kayley Torney has been chosen to receive a "Stamps Scholarship" worth up to $95,000 to attend the University of Oregon.

 

Michelle Holdway with the University of Oregon says it's an impressive accolade, and very few are given out.

 

"Well the stamps family charitable foundation is an organization that is really reaching out and working with some select institutions around the country. There are just 35 schools that are offering Stamps Scholarships and they are offering them in partnership with the schools. And what they provide are full tuition scholarships, along with room and board. And they also provide something that's a little unusual; and that is enrichment funding."

 

Holdway says that enrichment funding can be used to travel abroad to further her studies or take in internship.

 

There will be a special "signing event" at Bend High this morning at 10 a.m. where Tornay will be honored by the U of O for her achievements.
