Alumni Scholarship Information
The Snohomish County At-Risk Youth (ARY) and Juvenile Offender Drug Treatment Courts have been awarded a grant from the Blanche Miller Fund to provide school scholarships annually for eligible Drug Treatment Court graduates.
Blanche Miller was the first woman in the state to become a chief probation officer for a juvenile court. In 1946, she became a probation officer with Snohomish County and dedicated her life to investing in the lives of troubled youth. Ms. Miller passed away in 1975 and willed a portion of the sale of her property to the youth of Snohomish County Juvenile Court. This gift was left to help troubled youth lead a productive adulthood and invest in their educational goals.
