Rotary Honors Three as Students of the Month for November

 
In a hybrid online/in-person meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on November 16, 2021 honored three local high school students as Rotary Students of the Month.
 
Each month during the school year the club recognizes outstanding high school students in the city of Everett for their accomplishments and their promise.
 
Sequoia High Student of the Month is Liberty Scott, a focused, determined and creative student who takes great pride in her work. Her greatest academic strength is how much time she puts into her work to not only learn it but understand it. Her advisor said she is one of the nicest, hardworking students who works quietly to get her work done. Liberty plans to graduate early and continue her education at EvCC or Western Washington University to earn a degree in early education.
 
 
Everett High’s Student of the Month is Ailin Palma, a resilient and dedicated student. She has maintained a 3.853 GPA while taking challenging advanced placement classes, working 20-30 hours per week to help support her family, being involved in extracurricular activities like Cheer and Latinos Unidos, and volunteering at her local church. She hopes to go to university next year, and be the first generation Mexican American to graduate in her family.
 
 
Student of the Month from Cascade High is Mariana Oliva-Jauregui. Mariana is captain of the swim and track team, a member of NHS, Latino Club, and HOSA, and senior class vice president. As a student and a dance instructor in Grupo Folklorico Nuestras Raices, she showcases her culture through dance. She volunteers at the Lynnwood food bank, maintains a 4.0 GPA and hopes to study biological life sciences. As Miss Teen Washington Latina 2021, Mariana has been a strong activist for racial justice.
 
 
 

Rotary Boosts 55 Everett Students with $239,100 in Scholarships

 
Some 55 Everett students gained a college head start this week as the Rotary Club of Everett announced scholarships funded by club members and donors worth $239,100.
 
The total includes two new scholarships for studies in mental health, funded by Compass Health, and two new Goldfinch Brothers, Inc. scholarships in building trades and construction management.
In previous years, winning students were celebrated in ceremonies at the Everett School District Community Resource Center. This year scholarship winners were announced in a May 17 online webinar. Their individual grants range from $500 to $22,500.
 
"Our club members and partners are thrilled to help students with the cost of higher education,” said John Olson, Rotary president. “We are so impressed with what these award recipients have done in high school and are confident that they'll continue to succeed in whatever they do.”
 
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 nearly $5 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.

"The Rotary Club of Everett is the pre-eminent professional service club, known for its core values, support of youth education, and for successfully identifying and addressing community and international issues."
The Everett High Interact Club has started a new project called “Seagulls Eat Local” where the Interact Club will highlight the local Everett eats. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Interact Club will feature a new restaurant on Instagram. Their goal is to encourage students, staff, and the community to eat locally to support Everett’s small restaurants during the pandemic.
 
The Everett High Interact Club is asking the Rotary Club of Everett and others to support “Seagulls Eat Local” by eating at the local restaurants in downtown Everett.
 
Five years of work and eight visits by Rotary Club of Everett members will soon yield crops for needy farmers in the Dajabón region of the Dominican Republic.
 
The harvest: grants totaling nearly $107,000 from the Rotary Foundation, Everett-area Rotary clubs, Rotary District 5050 and more to help low-income Dominicans build greenhouse gardens where they will raise vegetables to eat and sell.
Dr Ian Saltzman, recently updated the club on the Everett School Districts outstanding results and provided insight into the upcoming bond election. More information and a concise video are available here.  For those who wish to contribute and support this drive, you can do so here.
