The community came together and generously donated a record $69,000.00 to the Snohomish Education Foundation at the Annual SEF Breakfast held at Glacier Peak High School.Â This event raises funds for Snohomish School District student programs in K-12 and college scholarships for graduating seniors, classroom grants, computer science programs and the Summer Arts & Science Academy.Â Robin Stefanson, Board President, shared, â€œwe are extremely proud to be a part of this visionary community, which includes our donors, sponsors, district leaders, principals and teachers and parents who are committed to providing exceptional education experiences for the students of Snohomish.Â This year, we were fortunate to have two scholarship-recipients (Destinee Halverson and Louisa Pendergast) return to speak about their experience in the Snohomish School District.Â They spoke about the impact their teachers and school had on them as well as how their SEF scholarships have benefited their experience at college and beyond. Â The Centennial Middle School Choir, led by Jaci Cummings performed as well as soloist, Kelsie Engen, GPHS Senior, who has the lead role in the GPHS Spring Musical â€œThe Wizard of Ozâ€.
