The BECU Foundation has awarded Brett Bashaw, a Shoreline resident, a $3,000 BECU Foundation scholarship.

Brett Bashaw, a Shoreline Community College graduate, volunteers at the American Red Cross. 

He will attend Western Washington University studying social work and social services.

“As a Special Education para-educator, I am an advocate, a counselor, a role model and a cheerleader.

"Working in Special Education has pushed me even more to grow further in my own education in the hopes that I will be more equipped to help others.

"I have spent much of my time either volunteering at a drop-in center for homeless youth, or working to assist struggling families through my time spent volunteering at The American Red Cross.”

He’s among 80 students to receive the award. The scholarship recipients were chosen based on their academic performance and passion for helping others through volunteering. Since 1995, the BECU Foundation has awarded more than $2.2 million in scholarships to 950 student members.

His hometown is Edmonds, and his high school was Edmonds Woodway.
