Everett Community College has selected Snohomish County NAACP branch president Janice Greene and Bargreen Coffee Co. president Howie Bargreen as the college’s 2015 Distinguished Alumni.
The two will be honored at a reception June 12.
Greene, a longtime employee of the Boeing Company, was honored for her commitment to education and to giving back to her community.
After attending EvCC, Greene went on to complete her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees — all while working full-time.
In addition to her work with the NACCP, Greene is a member of the Everett Rotary Club, member of Zonta International and participates in the YMCA Minority Achievers Program.
Bargreen, whose family has been in the community since at least 1898, is the president of his family’s business, Bargreen Coffee Co.
In addition to his studies at EvCC, Bargreen completed his bachelor’s and master’s degree at the University of Washington. He has been a supporter of the Everett Community College Foundation.
This is the ninth year the Alumni Association has named distinguished alumni. The award is the highest honor given to Everett Community College and Everett Junior College alumni.
