Kentridge senior awarded Don Barrows Memorial Scholarship by Federal Way Chorale

By Kathy Garrido, scholarship chairperson

Kentridge High School senior Garrett Thornton is the 2021 recipient of the Don Barrows Memorial Scholarship awarded by the Federal Way Chorale.

The $2,000 scholarship is offered each year to a graduating high school senior who plans a college major in the vocal arts, musical theatre or music education.

Garrett has been active in concert choirs, jazz ensembles, church choir and school and community musical theatre productions since he attended middle school.

His plans for the future include attending Western Washington University where he will complete a degree in music education with a minor area of study in audio engineering.

He plans to continue his participation in stage productions, as he considers performing an important and integral part of his life. Garrett is excited to pursue his passion and is grateful for the support of family, friends and his community.
