Mike Watson Scholarship

For the love of the game.

This scholarship program is funded as a memorial to Mike Watson, who was deeply committed to the well-being of student athletes. Mike graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School in 1982 and left us too soon in 2012. To honor Mike’s vast contributions to the athletic programs in the greater Washington Northwest territory – and more specifically to his alma mater, MTHS – the
Mountlake Terrace High School Boosters has endowed a $500 scholarship in his name.

One annual scholarship will be awarded in the amount of $500 and will be given to the recipient at the MTHS Senior Awards Night. The MTHS Boosters will only issue payment in the name of the awarded recipient.
