Describing this year’s Snohomish School District graduates as “exceptional”, the Snohomish Education Foundation announced that through fundraising and community donations it has awarded 165 scholarships totaling more than $165,000 to a combined total of 118 seniors from the three high schools, AIM, Snohomish High School and Glacier Peak High School. SEF especially thanks our community sponsors who award scholarships through SEF and our many community members of the scholarship committee who help in reading applications and selecting the recipients.

Celebrating its 31st year of operation, the Snohomish Education Foundation raises funds for several programs that benefit students in the Snohomish School District. Programs include everything from shoes for children in need to classroom grants for teachers and college scholarships for deserving Snohomish School District graduates. Since 1996, the Foundation has awarded over $1,857,000.00 in scholarships to district graduates. The public is welcome to give donations to existing scholarships or establish new scholarships in honor, memorial, by organization, family or alumni groups or under other categories.

SEF strongly supports community scholarships in order to help students in the Snohomish School District reach the highest level possible of their educational goals. SEF Trustee, Carol Robinson said, “The class of 2017 has students that are outstanding, both academically and athletically. We have students that plan to be machinists as well as physicians. The community of Snohomish should be proud of our graduates.”

This year, 2 new scholarships: the Karen Richards Memorial and the Tuck Gionet Memorial were awarded.
