all were members of the Northshore Rotary Club in 1984. With Northshore's sponsorship of a new Woodinville Rotary Club in 1986, Hughes, Renn and Workman became charter members of the Woodinville club and continued as Foundation trustees.
Nine Northshore Rotarians comprised the founders of the Northshore Scholarship Foundation, organizing a non-profit corporation in the fall of 1984 with officers and trustees all of whom were active members of the Northshore Rotary Club. At the time, the club served three communities -- Bothell, Kenmore and Woodinville -- later sponsoring the formation of the Woodinville Rotary Club to serve that community, concentrating on Woodinville High School. Northshore continues to support scholarships for Inglemoor and Bothell high schools and the Secondary Academy for Success (SAS) located in the Canyon Park Office and Industrial complex.
Since it was chartered in 1958, Northshore Rotary has annually budgeted money for scholarships as well as for contributions to its Foundation account. Presently the club's treasury disburses:
$10,000 to offer four academic scholarships for Bothell and
Inglemoor graduates. Beginning in 2009 two of the $2,000 scholarships were awarded
in memory of the late Dr. Karen Forys, a club past president and
superintendent of Northshore Schools. The club funds a $2,000 scholarship
at Secondary Academy (SAS).
In 2004 the club established a Scholarship Account expressly for the purpose of aiding a Northshore graduate planning to pursue studies in global awareness at Cascadia Community College.
Over the years -- following its initial donation of $12,000 in 1984 -- the Northshore Rotary Club has contributed a total of $91,677 to the Foundation and has annually cooperated with the Woodinville Rotary Club and Kiwanis Club of Northshore in covering operating costs of the Foundation and staging the annual breakfast to recognize the Foundation scholars.
Members of the club are active in the interviewing and selection of recipients of its own academic-oriented scholarships (listed above) as well as the:
Northshore Business Scholarship awarded in alternate years in
Bob Knowles memorial scholarship;
Janet and Gordon Livengood memorial scholarships with the
Lois and Vern Keener memorial vocational scholarship.
Rudy and Inez Beckstrom memorial vocational scholarship.
A number of memorial scholarship accounts have been established in the name of several Northshore Rotarians:
Karen Forys, past president and superintendent of Northshore schools until her death in September, 2007.
Julian Karp, a charter member, past president and long-time superintendent of Northshore Schools.
Bob Munro, a charter member, Foundation trustee and founding owner-operator of Kenmore Air Harbor.
Dr. John Stoutenburg, a past president, a Foundation trustee, who practiced chiropractic care in Woodinville.
