Scholarships for Senior Students

The PTA Community Partner Scholarship is a program which provides scholarship opportunities for graduating seniors.

The committee includes Tahoma School District parents, community leaders, business owners, THS administrators, and THS counselors who work together to strengthen the program. The focus is to honor all paths students may have planned after graduation and as such offer scholarship opportunities for ALL.

This is accomplished through fundraising, collaboration with community, businesses, companies, corporations, individuals, clubs, and organizations. Scholarship recipients are based on future-ready skills, academic testing, grade point average, volunteerism, activities, personal interests, essay writing, job experience, personal recommendations, and honoring varied pathways of individuals.
