Emma Yule was a bright and courageous young woman who served as Everett's first and only teacher in December 1891. In honor of her tradition of excellence, the Everett Public Schools Foundation created the Emma Yule Society, providing many opportunities for sponsors, businesses, community leaders and individuals to invest in our area's most important resources--our children and the educators who inspire them. This year there are opportunities to personalize your gift through classroom grant recognition. Visit Emma Yule Society and learn more about these opportunities.
