Walsh-Platt/Dwayne Lane Award

  • 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 Principals for Everett High School and Cascade High School 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.
     
    The award honors student-athletes who carry a minimum 2.5 GPA and excels in athletic competition. Each high school nominates four student-athletes and a committee of community representatives select the male and female winners. Below are the past winners.
