The Mountlake Terrace High School Sports Booster Club will honor the memory of the late Mike Watson with a new scholarship, to be presented for the first time this spring.
The $500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating MTHS student athlete at the school’s Senior Awards Night in June. Applications for this year’s scholarship are now being accepted; all forms can be found on the booster club’s website.
Watson passed away at age 48 in August 2012 after suffering a heart attack. A graduate of Mountlake Terrace High School in 1982, he had been involved in youth sports at the Alderwood Boys and Girls Club, Sno-King Youth Club and Lake Washington High School. He had been expected to take over coaching duties with the MTHS girls softball team this season before his untimely death.
