Woodside Elementary principal earns $5,000 LASER award

Woodside Elementary School principal Dr. Betty Cobbs was awarded the annual Science Education Advocate Award by the Washington State Leadership and Assistance Education Reform

Washington State Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER) selected just five recipients for its annual Science Education Advocate Award. Two of those recipients have Everett connections. One is Dr. Betty Cobbs, long-time school district leader who is now principal at Woodside Elementary. The other recipient and only organization on the winners’ list is Imagine! Children’s Museum in downtown Everett.

Thanks to the Boeing Company, each of the state’s five winners has earned $5,000 to be given to the not-for-profit public education entity of their choice to use to benefit science education. Dr. Cobbs has chosen to award her $5,000 to Woodside Elementary School’s PTA. When asked why she chose that group, Cobbs explained, “PTA advocates for the well-being and education of all students. In addition, the Woodside PTA provides enrichment resources for our students. The funds will be reserved for expanding the library collection of non-fiction science books for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.”
