Tyser Hicks, a seventeen-year-old Running Start student from River Ridge High School, has taken on a lot more than just school (and adapting to the pandemic) in the past year. He’s also an entrepreneur, and his company Vylo (pronounced vee-low) is a fashion sunglass brand focused on elevating style through minimalism and environmental sustainability.
Tyser launched Vylo in October 2020 with the money he saved from doing summer yardwork projects in his community.
July 14 UPDATE:
The process for verifying vaccination is now in place, and students and employees are encouraged to complete verification as soon as possible.
Verification is a quick online process. Students and employees can verify their vaccination status or exemption after logging in to the college’s mySPSCC portal.
SPSCC today announced their participation in a pilot Summer Running Start program focused on reaching underserved high school students. One of three community colleges in Washington State invited to participate, SPSCC will welcome up to 250 students from local urban and rural school districts.
Summer Running Start students can take up to five credits, typically one class, through the tuition-free program. Class fees, books, and supplies still need to be paid by the student, although fee waivers and book loans are available for low-income students.
Thea Deanon, a high school senior on a path to becoming a therapist, decided to enroll in Running Start after she was inspired watching her older brother go through the program. “I thought it was a cool experience and it saved a lot of money. I thought it would be a lot of fun,” she said.

We know. You really planned on a different kind of college life this fall. But until you and your family are ready to get you there safely, SPSCC is here for you with affordable, transferrable online and hybrid classes.

Attending college in Washington State, and really the whole world, looks a bit different right now. After Governor Jay Inslee's recent "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" order, you may be thinking it's best to put your college plans on hold. However, both state and federal funding for education is able to serve more students than ever, and many community colleges are making it easier than ever to enroll and register.
