FWPS honors Integrity Life Church at 2019 WASA Community Recognition Awards

Pastors Joseph and Pamela Bowman with Integrity Life Church were recognized at the 2019 Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) Community Recognition Awards for the significant impact they have made on the lives of our student-scholars in Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS).

Every year Integrity Life Church awards scholarships up to $1,500 with applications being open to any FWPS college-focused scholar. Integrity Life Church’s efforts are in direct support of the district Strategic Plan Goal 5 Persistence to Graduation: High School Graduation Through Successful Transitions.

“To be recognized and chosen out of the great bunch of people in our community is truly an honor,” shared Pastor Joseph Bowman.

“I have seen the positive impact through the smiles on the faces of the students we serve—it’s life changing for us,” said Pastor Pamela Bowman. “To do a small part that makes such a great impact is humbling for us. Anyway we can give back, it counts.”

For the last seven years Integrity Life Church has hosted a backpack giveaway event. Within the past two years, they provided 700 backpacks to scholars in need. Pastor Joseph Bowman has served on several district committees including the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) and helped in recruiting mentors for The Mentor and Me program. FWPS is appreciative of this support for the district Strategic Plan Goal 2 Whole Child: Thriving, Confident Responsible Individuals.

“Pastors Joseph and Pamela Bowman are transformational leaders in the Federal Way Community,” said Dr. Tammy Campbell, FWPS superintendent. “They have supported so many district- and school-based efforts and as a result have positively impacted the lives of hundreds if not thousands of scholars.”
