|Keith Gilbertson Sr. taught, coached and mentored youth for 61 years at Snohomish High School – with your contribution his memorial scholarship will last even longer.||
Join the legacy by putting your name on the Keith Gilbertson Memorial to become an “honorary member of the family”
When Mr. Gilbertson passed in February 2011, he was in his 16th year helping coach the SHS girls basketball team, and while hospitalized had every expectation of quickly returning to the court. He was not able to realize his wish, but was in the girls’ hearts and remains so. For that reason the memorial committee selected the girls basketball game with Mount Vernon on January 18th 2013 for the Keith Gilbertson Sr. Memorial dedication ceremony. You can read more about the ceremony here and you can see photos of the Gilbertson Memorial here.
The image at left shows the first set of “legacy plaques” honoring donors to the memorial and scholarship. You can join them with a donation of at least $100.
Check out our new story about 2012 Gilby scholars Gravelle and Caldwell writing us to renew their scholarships for 2013 and a video update to Keith Olson’s story about Mr. Gilbertson’s WIAA induction at the “Read more about Gilb’s legacy” link below!)
