Everett Community College's Distinguished Alumni award honors alumni who have demonstrated leadership in their chosen professions and distinguished themselves through service to their communities. The award is the highest honor given to Everett Community College and Everett Junior College alumni.
2014 Everett Community College Distinguished Alumni
Everett Community College has selected real estate business owner Barbara Lamoureux and former Everett City Council member Ed Morrow as the college’s 2014 Distinguished Alumni.
The two were honored at the EvCC Foundation benefit breakfast April 22.
“Barbara and Ed are known in Everett and beyond for their dedication to the community. They set a wonderful example – personally and professionally – for our current graduates,” EvCC President David Beyer said.
Lamoureux, owner and founder of Lamoureux Real Estate in Everett, graduated from Everett Junior College in 1965. After a career that included working at Judd & Black, teaching for the American Fashion Institute, and doing color analysis for a living, Lamoureux decided to start her own business in 1988.
She supports many charitable organizations including hosting an annual teddy bear drive for Christmas House.
Morrow is also known for his work in the community. The retired elementary school teacher and principal, city council member, port commissioner and champion of the city of Everett graduated from Everett Junior College in 1954. He and his wife Betty are dedicated to helping others, including donating their historic home to the city of Everett for community use.
