Each year, the Alumni Association awards two scholarships to deserving Bothell High School graduating seniors to help with their expenses for college or technical school. The Association's scholarship committee works through the Scholarship Foundation of Northshore in making those selections. Students apply through the Foundation, and applications are forwarded to the Association's committee for review. The committee interviews candidates and awards the scholarships based on both community service and scholastic achievement.
Scholarship recipients by year are on the Awards page.
The 2022 recipients will be posted following the May 18, 2022 Virtual Awards Celebration and the release of the Cougar Tracks Newsletter.
2022 BHSAA SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
Hayden Bewley (General Studies) plans to study criminal justice at Washington State University in preparation for a career in criminology. He is currently the head drum Major for the Bothell High marching band. In addition, he is the lead trombonist in both the Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Band. In May, he and the Jazz Band will represent Bothell High School at the Essentially Ellington Festival in New York City. Hayden has also helped the community by volunteering with the music booster’s Goodwill Fill-A-Truck donation drive to raise funds for the BHS music program.
Stephanie Rodriguez (Voc/Tech) is excited to remain local while studying political science at Cascadia College in Bothell. Watching her brother struggle with homework, Stephanie became aware of the need for ESL mentors in her school and the community. As a senior at Bothell High School, she started a student union club to share information and tutor other students. She hopes to develop a similar club at Cascadia College and help not only fellow college students, but assist adults with forms and documents. Another important goal for her is to reinstate the local Bookmobile program that was suspended in response to the Covid pandemic. She’d like to help expand its lending library to include more sports and hobby selections for young students. She would also like to see it carry information that would be beneficial to adults as well.
