From an Everett Public Schools news release.
Twelve graduating seniors from Everett Public Schools were finalists at the 35th annual Superintendent’s Scholar Awards event held at the Everett Golf and Country Club on May 24, 2017.
The Superintendent’s Scholar Award, sponsored by Everett Public Schools Foundation, is given to the top scholar from each high school. Student nominees acknowledge the educators who have made a difference in their lives.
To be considered for the award, candidates must be in the top five percent of their graduating class or have scored in the top five percent of seniors who have taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
Counselors at each high school select three representatives from those who have applied.
