Mary died in February 1994 after serving over eight years on the Highline School Board, where she dedicated herself to promoting access to education and was a strong advocate for rigorous science education. The award is intended to support students completing their capstone research projects. Expenditures may include, but are not limited to lab supplies, international or domestic travel to perform research, international or domestic travel to present research results or stipends for students participating in these activities.
