Sen. Frockt applauds new higher education opportunities in Shoreline, Lake Forest Park

Saturday, March 28, 2015

On Friday, Shoreline Community College announced the Shoreline Scholars Scholarship Program, a program to create 50 new full tuition scholarships for students in the cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

Sen. David Frockt, who represents Lake Forest Park in the Senate and serves on the Senate Higher Education committee, applauded the proposal.

“Lake Forest Park and Shoreline residents will have more higher education opportunities close to home under this proposal,” said Frockt. 
“We all know that higher education is extremely important for students to succeed and get good jobs, so expanding accessible and affordable college opportunities in our area is critically important. 
"I applaud the leadership of President Cheryl Roberts and the Shoreline Community College to open these new scholarships to local students. Now the legislature’s job is to increase funding for colleges and universities across the state so all students have the chance to go to and afford college.” 

The scholarships will be available to students that reside within the Shoreline Community College District, have achieved a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average, have scored well on the Compass college placement tests and demonstrate financial need.

The program will be open for students enrolling in the fall of 2015. Information can be found on the college website.
