The Rotary Club of Everett held their annual scholarship awards last night. Here are the details as provided by Walt Greenwood.

Some 58 Everett students will gain a college head start this week as the Rotary Club of Everett presents scholarships funded by club members and donors worth an unprecedented $281,500.

The total includes a new scholarship for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) studies, funded by Fluke Corporation, and another in general studies funded by Leavitt Group Northwest.

Scholarship winners were recognized in an in-person celebration May 17th at the Everett Civic Auditorium. Their individual grants range from $500 to $25,000.

“Members of the Everett Rotary Club and our community partners believe that education powers progress,” said Greg Lineberry, Rotary president. “In a world faced with so many challenges and uncertainties, our club was humbled by the achievements and aspirations of our award recipients, and we are happy to support them as they advance their knowledge and skills.”

Rotarians in Everett 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 $5 million in scholarships.

“What the Everett Rotary does every year for our students is incredible,” said superintendent Ian Saltzman of the Everett School District. “These 58 students have worked hard throughout high school and are ready for their next educational opportunities. Having some financial assistance always makes the path a bit easier! My heartfelt gratitude to the Rotary for all their support.”

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.
