This is today from Walt Greenwood at Rotary Club of Everett…

The application deadline is March 2nd. Students should check with their counselor on how to apply.

Two long time Everett institutions have joined to fund new scholarships for graduates from Everett schools.

Goldfinch Brothers, Inc. (GBI), in business here since 1892, will contribute $2,000 for each of two scholarships – one in construction management, the other in applied trades. The Everett Rotary Youth Foundation will add $1,000, for a total of $3,000 for each scholarship. The Rotary Club of Everett was chartered in 1917.

“We are very excited to be able to give back to the community in partnership with Everett Rotary Youth Foundation,” said Greg Goldfinch, GBI CEO. “These scholarships reflect GBI’s commitment to paying it forward to the construction community to help build a better tomorrow with the next generation of leaders.”

The new scholarships recognize the importance of training in industrial and technical skills as a foundation for both personal success and community economic development.

GBI is a market leader in commercial and residential glass and glazing services, bringing consistency and attention to detail that is unmatched in the industry. GBI provides complete and accurate estimates, supported by CAD design engineers, professional project management, and end-to-end quality assurance for both commercial and residential projects. Goldfinch Brothers recently moved from downtown Everett to a new 83,000 square foot facility located at 11300 Beverly Park Road near Paine Field.

Students at Cascade, Everett and Sequoia High Schools and Everett Community College who wish to apply for the new scholarships should consult with their student counselors about the requirements and application process. Deadline for scholarship applications is Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Scholarship winners will be announced in May.
