This year, two mothers with wills of steel and hearts of gold were chosen for the All-Washington Academic Team from Lower Columbia College. Maryanne Hirning and Michelle Saiz filled the shoes of their academically outstanding predecessors, being honored by Gov. Jay Inslee at a ceremony held in Olympia. They will both receive $1,000 in scholarships–$500 from Keybank and $500 from the ever-benevolent LCC Foundation.
