Congrats, Act Six Scholars!
Act Six recently announced its newest group of emerging urban and community leaders to receive full-tuition scholarships. Among them are three students from Spokane Public Schools.
Selected through a rigorous three-month competition, these diverse student leaders were selected for their commitment to serving on campus and at home, passion for learning, eagerness to foster intercultural relationships, and willingness to step out of their comfort zones.
Launched in 2002 by the Northwest Leadership Foundation in Tacoma, Act Six seeks to develop urban and community leaders to be agents of transformation on campus and in their home communities.
Act Six develops leaders through a simple, but powerful, four-step strategy:
Recruit and select diverse, multicultural cadres of the most promising emerging urban and community leaders.
Train and prepare these groups of students in the year prior to college, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically, and grow as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation.
Send and fund the teams together to select private, liberal arts colleges on four-year scholarships.
Support and inspire by providing strong campus support and ongoing leadership development to nurture these young people as they find their vocation and grow into the next generation of community leaders.
Congratulations to this year’s Act Six recipients from SPS:
Whitworth University: Alexia Campos Flores, Shadle Park High School, and Jainee Weidemann, Lewis and Clark High School
Gonzaga University: Tia Moua, John R. Rogers High School
