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.
