Kira Stahl, who is graduating with a degree in Business, was notified last week that she is Green River Community College's University of Washington Tacoma Next Step Scholar. Stahl is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and recipient of the Linda Warner Memorial Scholarship and Green River Foundation General Scholarship. Laura Morris-Roney, who is graduating with a degree in Business Management, was also nominated for the award.

"You were selected because we believe you will not only benefit from what the University of Washington Tacoma has to offer, you, but also because your campus will benefit from what you offer, both within the classroom as an academically talented scholar and outside the classroom as a contributing member of the campus community," Kimberly Fee, the University of Washington Tacoma's Associate Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs, said in Stahl's awarding letter.

The scholarship recognizes students who will contribute to the University of Washington Tacoma as well as benefit from attending the school. Scholarships of $6,000 for two years are awarded to students transferring to the university from seven local community colleges. Students from Highline, Olympic, Pierce Fort Steilacoom and Puyallup, South Puget Sound and Tacoma community colleges also receive awards.
