For Donors

Scholarship Fund

Elizabeth Anne Libby Memorial Scholarship Fund

Created by Elizabeth's family to honor her memory, this fund will provide scholarships to North Thurston High School seniors to help support their higher education goals. Elizabeth graduated from North Thurston High School in 1997 and the University of Washington in 2002 with double majors in Political Science and Communications. She loved the outdoors; especially trips to the Olympic and Cascade mountains with Mt. Rainier as her favorite destination. She loved to travel, fish, run, and spend time with her family. She completed the New York City marathon in 2008. She is the great-granddaughter of Millard A. and Edith L. Libby of the pioneer Libby family for whom Libby Road and Libby Creek in Thurston County are named. She touched many lives with her generosity, compassion, and empathy.
