In an online meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on April 20th 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.
Student of the Month from Cascade High is Katina Nguyen. She has been involved with cheerleading, student government, advanced leadership, Interact and Key Club along with helping in the school tutoring program. She also helps within the community at the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement and works at Basil Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine. Katina plans to study engineering at the University of Washington, aiming for a career in biomedical engineering that enables her to help others.

Sequoia High Student of the Month is Ilario Smith. Ilario's advisor says "Ilario makes sure he is always current in his schoolwork. He is positive about everything and strives to make himself the best student he can possibly be." Another teacher stated, " His presence elevates mood of the class and creates a positive atmosphere. He brings pure joy and provides a voice for his peers by asking questions that other students may not feel comfortable asking. I am incredibly proud of him." 
Student of the Month from Everett High is Margaret (Molly) Riker. Her Interact advisor says “After being involved in Interact Club for the past 4 years, she has really stepped up to the challenge to lead and make things happen during remote learning, including pioneering a campaign to support Everett restaurants called “Seagulls Eat Local.” Her leadership is consistent, and her peers find it easy to follow her.” Molly will study nursing at Pacific Lutheran University, volunteer in healthcare and become a registered nurse.

Goldfinch Brothers Teams with Rotary to Fund Scholarships
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.

"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.
