Cairncross & Hempelmann Supports Rainier Scholars

Cairncross & Hempelmann is pleased to support Rainier Scholars, a program that offers a pathway to college graduation for hard-working, low-income students of color.  This year, Cairncross & Hempelmann will provide care packages to 24 Rainier Scholars.  Care packages include necessities, snacks, and a handwritten note to provide a much-needed boost during final exam time.

“We are happy to contribute these care packages to Rainier Scholars in an effort to support their academic achievements.  Students of all backgrounds deserve the access to education, and we hope our 24 care packages will let these students know they have support from the community,” said Sophia Bell Lavin, Executive Director of Cairncross & Hempelmann.

Rainier Scholars provides intensive academic preparation, leadership development and personalized support so scholars can earn their four-year degrees and become career professionals and leaders in the community.  Since 2000, Rainier Scholars has transformed the lives of more than 700 students and their families.  Learn more at
