The BECU Foundation has awarded Redmond’s Malgorzata Radka a $3,000 scholarship.

Radka, a Bellevue College student studying medicine, teaches Polish folk dancing with the theater group, Mlodzi Polanie.

“I had come to know the value of my heritage, the role it plays in shaping who I am, and the significance of the lifelong relationships that I formed within this community. The older I become, the clearer I am able to see the benefits I receive through my involvement in Mlodzi Polanie,” Radka said.

She’s among 80 students to receive the award. The scholarship recipients were chosen based on their academic performance and passion for helping others through volunteering. Since 1995, the BECU Foundation has awarded more than $2.2 million in scholarships to 950 student members.
