A Symbol of Courage and Generosity

A lion perched in the reception area proudly watches over the Louis Braille School. The statue was presented to Idamae and John Schack by the Everett Central Lions Club in recognition of the Schacks’ many years of philanthropy that significantly increased Everett’s standing as an art and cultural center. It is appropriate the Lion now reside in the Louis Braille School. Idamae and John Schack and the Lions Club have been steadfast supporters of the School from the beginning. Their continuing generosity and encouragement continues to flow our way as the dream becomes reality.
