Everett Community College has selected real estate business owner Barbara Lamoureux and former Everett City Council member Ed Morrow as the college’s 2014 Distinguished Alumni.

The two were honored at the Everett Community College Foundation breakfast April 22.

“Barbara and Ed are known in Everett and beyond for their dedication to the community. They set a wonderful example – personally and professionally – for our current graduates,” EvCC President David Beyer said in a statement.

Lamoureux, owner and founder of Lamoureux Real Estate in Everett, graduated from Everett Junior College in 1965.

After a career that included working at Judd &Black, teaching for the American Fashion Institute, and doing color analysis for a living, Lamoureux decided to start her own business in 1988. She supports many charitable organizations including hosting an annual teddy bear drive for Christmas House.

Morrow is also known for his work in the community. The retired elementary school teacher and principal, city council member and port commissioner graduated from Everett Junior College in 1954.

He and his wife Betty are dedicated to helping others, including donating their historic home to the city of Everett for community use.

This is the eighth year the Alumni Association has named distinguished alumni.

Past recipients include businessman Tom Gaffney, city of Everett executive administrator Deborah Wright, Everett Police Chief Kathy Atwood, Everett Firefighter Gary Parks, auto dealer Dwayne Lane, entertainer Stan Boreson, business owners Doug and Barbara Allan, former Herald publisher Larry Hanson, Dr. William Hummel and Doris Hummel, former Washington state Sen. Jean Berkey and businessman Joe Cooper.
