Two of our local services organizations, Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo and the South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club recently awarded 21 and 12 scholarships, respectively. Each of these organizations worked throughout the year on various fundraisers in order to provide funds for deserving students in our area.
For Kiwanis, the 21 receiving applicants (out of 65) each received $1,000, while Rotary gave 12 scholarships ranging from $500 to $1500. It says much about our community that this many local residents value their youth, and work so hard to ensure the development and sustainability of their educational future.
In a time when so many places have what is cavalierly termed “throwaway kids”, Mukilteo stands out with their support, fiscally and otherwise, saying “Kids Matter.”
