Walsh-Platt/Dwayne Lane & Robert C Polk Memorial Scholarship

  • The first Walsh-Platt Athletic Banquet was held in the Spring of 1962. Construction of Cascade High School had been completed the preceding fall, and now housed on the new campus were 800 students in the sophomore and junior classes. There was no senior class until the following school year (1962-1963).

    With the opening of the new high school, the whole concept of high school athletics in the city of Everett would undergo a change. In an effort to encourage continuing the existing high standard in athletics in both high schools, Walsh-Platt Motors (now Dwayne Lane’s Family of Auto Centers) made this proposal:

    “In furtherance of the meritorious desires of the Everett and Cascade High Schools and their athletic directors to jointly build a high-standard, good-citizenship athletic program with a reasonable competitive relationship, appealing to the parents of the school district, and to properly reward scholarship and good sportsmanship, Walsh-Platt deem it a privilege to sponsor an award to the individual school representative in the form of a college scholarship.”

    In September 1994, Everett Public Schools opened Henry M. Jackson High School and they were added to the pool. In 2012, the name of the award was changed to the Dwayne Lane Athletic Award.
    In April of 2021, we lost our beloved District Athletic Director, Robert Polk. Robert was a true servant leader who worked tirelessly to improve opportunities for students to succeed on and off the field of play. The Robert C. Polk Memorial Athletic Scholarship is awarded to outstanding high school athletes from Everett Public Schools who, in addition to their athletic prowess, also embody the personal attributes that made Robert Polk the leader he was: commitment to teamwork, sportsmanship and character.

    This year, April 2022, we are thrilled to offer both the Dwayne Lane & Robert C. Polk Athletic Memorial Scholarships.  Both scholarships will honor student-athletes who carry a minimum of 2.5 GPA and excel in athletic competition. The scholarship committee will interview 4 nominees from each high school & select their Athlete(s) of the Year. 
    Below are the past winners.
