Rotary Honors Three as Students of the Month for January

In a hybrid online/in-person meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on January 18th  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.
  
  
CASCADE HIGH SCHOOL
 
Cascade High Student of the Month is Jacob Hahn. Jacob has been in band four years and is now a senior leader in the program. He is an athlete, competing in tennis and golf. He is a student leader, participating in advanced leadership. Jacob is in National Honor Society, with an almost perfect GPA average. He has spent each high school summer working for the Everett Aquasox. He is a member of the Cascade Interact Club, has worked four years on the food drive at Cascade and volunteered for Stuff the Bus for six years.
  
  
SEQUOIA HIGH SCHOOL
 
Student of the Month from Sequoia High is Isaak Jacoby, an incredibly humble, kind student who will be graduating early. After graduation he plans to work full-time, then study social work at Evergreen State College. When not at school, he works at the Everett YMCA. Earlier in high school he sailed with the Sea Scouts and helped clean up the San Juan Islands with his 4H group. During his spare time, he enjoys gaming and traveling out-of-state to visit his grandparents.
  
  

 

EVERETT HIGH SCHOOL

Everett High Student of the Month is Laith Dirsiye, a thoughtful and considerate student involved in sports and leadership activities. His anatomy teacher said “Laith has the ability to bring out the best in others. He is always helping his team in discussions, group work and assignments and gets others engaged with him. He is a true leader.” His AP English Literature teacher said Laith “engages in learning with curiosity and a drive to not just get the answer but to understand it, too. He makes EHS a better place to be.”

  
 

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.

Leavitt Group Northwest Teams with Rotary to Boost Student Scholarships

 

Local firm Leavitt Group Northwest has joined with the Rotary Club of Everett to fund a new $4,000 scholarship for Everett-area students seeking to advance their education.
Leavitt Group’s contribution of $2,000 will be matched with a $2,000 Rotary grant to fund a scholarship for college-bound students from Everett schools.
 
“As education costs continue to rise, it’s crucial for us as a company to assist our youth today in their academic endeavors,” said Jeff Olsen, Co-Owner and Senior Executive Vice President of Leavitt Group Northwest Insurance. “We believe it is important to support those who take the initiative to improve themselves. Contributing to scholarship programs such as this is a means by which we can plant seeds that will aid in the betterment of our community.”  
 
“This support from Leavitt Group will build exactly the kind of community benefits at the heart of Rotary,” said Greg Lineberry, Rotary President. “We welcome others to join us in this important work.”
 
Supporting local students is a major focus for the Rotary Cub of Everett. In 2021 the club and its supporters provided more than $239,000 in scholarships to 55 Everett-area students. Anyone interested in supporting scholarships or other Rotary initiatives should contact club member Russ Kimball at 425-754-1060 for more information.
 
About Leavitt Group Northwest: Leavitt Group merged in 2012 with Whitfield United, which was founded by Lawrence V. Whitfield in Monroe, Washington in 1948. Whitfield Insurance has been part of the Everett and Snohomish community for decades and understands the importance of serving in the community. Their culture and mission has stayed the same: To protect people and businesses through innovative insurance solutions. Over the years Leavitt has added locations in Auburn, Oak Harbor, University Place, Federal Way and Friday Harbor, and grown from a one-person agency to a company with more than 70 employees.  
 
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.
