A tradition of creating opportunities and building futures
The Emma Yule Society is named to honor Emma Yule who served as Everett's first and only teacher in December 1891. She later became the district's first principal and served as superintendent from 1897 to 1900. Through her leadership and pioneer spirit, early Everett's youth had the advantage of a good education
