Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Seattle Colleges officials

On Wed. March 7, Seattle Colleges Chancellor Shouan Pan, North Seattle College President Warren Brown and Seattle Central College President Sheila Edwards Lange joined Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Larry Nyland and Mayor Jenny Durkan to sign an agreement entering into a collaborative partnership to implement the Seattle Promise Program in the upcoming years.

The Seattle Promise College Tuition Program will expand on the successful 13th Year Promise Scholarship from serving three high schools to serving six high schools – Chief Sealth, Cleveland, Garfield, Ingraham, West Seattle and Rainier Beach.

When fully implemented, the Seattle Promise will provide two years of free college for all Seattle public high school graduates, removing financial barriers to higher education facing many Seattle public school students.

Thank you Ingraham High School for hosting us and partnering with North in this first year!
