BELLEVUE, Wash. – City University of Seattle and the Seattle Seahawks have launched the 2009 Seahawks Undergrad Scholarship. This is the third year the $15,000 scholarship will be awarded to an individual who exemplifies a strong commitment to advancing their career goals and improving their life by serving their community.
“We are very fortunate we can assist a cash-strapped student to start or finish a degree with this innovative scholarship program through our partnership with the Seattle Seahawks,” said Lee Gorsuch, City University of Seattle president.
Lynn D. Winslow received last year’s Seahawks Scholarship and now is just a year away from graduating with a bachelor’s degree in administration with a human resource management emphasis. “I think going back to school is the first step in the continuation of your life,” says Winslow. “Thinking of returning to school may sound difficult but it’s not that hard once you begin the process. It’s a matter of empowerment – empowering oneself to move forward and seize the opportunity to learn. As a role model to my children, I want to walk the talk. Additionally, getting the best grades I can simply says, ‘Thank you’ to those who believed in me.”
CityU and the Seattle Seahawks will announce the 2009 Seahawks Undergrad scholarship winner at the Seahawks Dec. 20 home game against the New York Jets. Click here for more information about CityU’s scholarship programs.
