Three Clover Park High School students earn Act Six Scholarships

Clover Park High School (CPHS) seniors Tyler Bosser, Isaiah Huey and Julie Waruguru have earned full-tuition, full-need Act Six scholarships. Act Six is a leadership and scholarship program that seeks to develop urban and community leaders to be agents of transformation on campus and in their home communities. Bosser, Huey and Waruguru were among 22 students in the Puget Sound region selected as new Act Six scholars, winning full scholarships collectively worth more than $4 million. According to Act Six, the students were selected through a rigorous three-month competition among more than 700 applicants.

Bosser is part of Pierce College’s Running Start program which allows students to take college courses while completing high school. He plans to attend Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) and major in business with a minor in sociology. He would like to open a local coffee shop for those in need.

“The community has given so much to me,” said Bosser. “This scholarship will help me give back to my community.”

Huey also plans to attend PLU to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history. He wants to return to CPHS and teach history.

“There are so many Clover Park High School teachers who supported me through this process and taught me to believe in myself,” said Huey. “I want to pass on that same support to students when I start teaching here.”

Waruguru will attend Northwest University in Kirkland and plans to major in pre-med and pursue admission to medical school. She would like to work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Seattle.

“When I moved here from Kenya in 2013, the community helped build a house for my family through Habitat for Humanity,” said Waruguru. “I want to make a difference in the lives of those who don’t have medical insurance.”
