PROGRAM:   Everett Community College Athletic Scholarships & Annual Fundraiser
Tammy Dunn, PE, introduced Garet Studer, Athletic Director at Everett Community College. Garet is in his 5th year at the Athletic Director, he worked for Northwest Athletic Conference for 2 years and is the past chair of the Snohomish County Sports Commission.
Garet Studer talked about how athletic scholarships work at the community college level. Athletic scholarships offer opportunities for athletes to attend college. Scholarships are an ultimate reward for the athlete’s hardwork and dedication. Same for the parents as the parents have taken their son or daughter to practices, camps and games. Plus the parents have volunteered or coached through their children’s sports years.
2% of high school students, varsity level, will earn a sports scholarship.
Division I full ride scholarships are a small percentage of student athletes playing a sport. There are opportunities at Community Colleges, NAIA, Division II & Division III.
Everett Community College Baseball sent eight athletes to Division I schools last year. This is an opportunity for the student athlete to further their education.
Everett Community College gives 40% as scholarships. The school has 24 scholarships available for the sports, both men and women.  Everett Community College has 11 men/women varsity sports. $130,000 scholarships are distributed. The athletic department raises the scholarship money through gym rentals, concessions, and student fees plus assistance with the Everett Community College Foundation.
Garet answered questions.
