A letter to the Proud Alumni of EHS

Dear Evergreen High School Alumni,

We are writing to share an exciting opportunity with each of you…its a chance to help student athletes from Evergreen take the next step in their education. We’ve been working with Terri McMahan, the Highline School District Athletic Director – a wonderful leader with a compelling vision for the district’s athletic program ensuring that student athletes have what they need to succeed in the classroom as well as on the court or field Another part of the plan is to encourage student-athlete’s vision for life beyond high-school.

To that end, we want to invite each of you to consider making a financial contribution specifically toward a scholarship fund for Evergreen student athletes. Terri has a fund raising strategy that includes approaching businesses and other potential donors. But the eight of us believe that there are MANY Evergreen Alumni who would appreciate the opportunity to invest in the ongoing education of student athletes who desire to pursue a college education. . It may interest you to know that over 75% of the student body qualify for free and reduced lunch. This means that many families of our student-athletes may need some financial help to make that dream a reality.

We are hoping that as Evergreen Alums, you will join us in making a financial contribution to this important scholarship fund. You can do this by clicking on the link below to the Highline Schools Foundation. then click on the Scholar Athlete Recognition Program “Donate Onlne” link. Then follow the instructions to make your contribution through pay-pal. It is a simple process. Make sure you check the box that says you are an Evergreen Alumni.

Four student atheletes from each high-school in the district will be recognized and will be given their award at a banquet on May 22nd. Any donations received after May 18th will be applied to next year’s scholarship fund.

On behalf of the next generation of student atheletes that hail from Evergreen and their families, thank you!!!
