Greg Horak graduated from Anacortes High School in 1989, and passed away on July 24, 1994.  Greg had a caring sensitivity and concern for others; he was independent, self-reliant and had a true love of life. He is most remembered for his desire to serve others. In his senior year at AHS, Greg operated Safe Rides, a program offering late-night rides to anyone in need operating out off Dr. Anderson’s (AHS counselor) basement. After graduation, Greg’s desire to be of service and save lives led him to join the U.S. Coast Guard. He proudly served as a Radioman and was stationed in Kodiak, Alaska, Tokyo, Japan, and on the Polar Star icebreaker out of Seattle. This scholarship is offered as a tribute to Greg and his memory.  Scholarship amount: $1,000.
