BHS alum selg scores leadership award
The Washington Association of School Administrators recently awarded its Community Leadership Award to Bothell resident and Bothell High alum George Selg.
A member of the Bothell Class of ‘63, Selg spent the last year or so spearheading an effort to raise money for a new multi-media scoreboard for Pop Keeney Stadium.
Funded entirely by donations, the new scoreboard will provide a state-of-the-art display with a multi-media screen.
“The vision, dedication and generosity of George and his many committed supporters will create a legacy of community engagement and student recognition for years to come,” said Northshore Superintendent Larry Francois.
Selg envisions that the new scoreboard will serve as a forum for recognizing student athletic accomplishments, as well as academic, vocational, extra-curricular and community service achievements. It will be the first such community-sponsored scoreboard in the state.
The district expects the new scoreboard will be installed this spring and fully operational for use by all Northshore schools next fall.
