ANNOUNCEMENT 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a true community legend, Glenn Rickert. Both Glenn and Gloria were well known and loved educators in the Burlington-Edison School District. Gloria was a third-grade teacher who her students adored. Glenn was a teacher at the high-school and legendary football coach who is a member of the Washington State Coaches Hall of Fame!  It is only fitting, that the Rickert family is choosing to create this scholarship fund to support the educational goals of graduating seniors from Burlington-Edison High School who will be pursuing post-secondary education goals.

You may be asking how you can also honor the legacy of Glenn and Gloria Rickert? Make a Donation! You will not only be honoring both of these very special educators but making it possible for students to achieve their future dreams by obtaining a college degree!
