Act Six announced Friday that eight emerging leaders from the Spokane and Tacoma-Seattle areas will receive scholarships to Whitworth University.

Whitworth will provide full-tuition, full-need scholarships over four years.

Here are this year’s recipients:

Malachi Areta, Joel E Ferris High School
Josh Nguyen, Shadle Park High School
NhatMinh Nguyen, John R Rogers High School
Willow Zimmerman, Community School
