Gertrude Jackson Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship trust fund was established in 1969 by Senator Henry Jackson, a 1930 Everett High School graduate, as a tribute to his sister Gertrude, who taught at Garfield Elementary School for 43 years. Recently, 17 awards of approximately $2700 each were given to seniors from Everett, Cascade, Mariner, Kamiak, Jackson, ACES, and Sequoia High Schools.
