5 FWPS seniors named Act Six Scholars

Partner colleges to provide full-tuition, full-need scholarships over four years.

Five Federal Way Public Schools seniors were recently named Act Six Scholars in April.

Act Six is a leadership and scholarship program with a rigorous three-month competition among more than 1,100 applicants. Thirty students between Seattle and Tacoma were selected to receive full-scholarships worth up to $245,000 at five partner colleges.

Act Six began in 2002 when Tim Herron, a math teacher at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, approached Northwest Leadership Foundation and Whitworth University with a bold idea to invest in a new kind of leadership for the campus and the community, according to the organization.

Northwest Leadership Foundation and Whitworth partnered together, and the first cadre of scholars arrived on campus in 2003. Four years later, all 11 of those students graduated from Whitworth with records of distinguished leadership, service and academic achievement.

The selected student leaders are recognized for their commitment to serving their school, eagerness to foster intercultural relationships, and willingness to step out of their comfort zones, according to the district.

The colleges will provide full-tuition, full-need scholarships over four years.
