Here are more details.

Some 47 Everett students gained a college head start this week as the Rotary Club of Everett distributed $214,000 in scholarships funded by Rotary members and donors.

In previous years, winning students were celebrated in ceremonies at the Everett School District Community Resource Center. This year, to avoid exposure to the coronavirus, scholarship certificates were mailed to the winners on Wednesday, June 10. Their grants range from $500 to $21,000.

“The Rotarians of the Rotary Club of Everett remain supportive and dedicated to our Everett area students,” said Steve Miller, Rotary president. “These students will be our future. It is a pleasure and honor to acknowledge and praise their efforts and successes. We wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives.”

Rotarians work closely with school counselors to identify scholarship prospects. Those nominees are then interviewed by Rotary members, who make the final selection. In total, the club has awarded more than $4.3 million in scholarships.

Supporting youth is a major focus for the Rotary Club of Everett. Club members share their business experiences with students participating in the school district’s AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) program. The club also participates in student exchange programs by sending local students overseas and hosting students from other countries.
