Get to know our 2020-21 Board President, Scott Covey


Nearly seven years ago, my wife Amy and I moved to Bainbridge Island. We knew the strong community and excellent schools were the foundation we wanted for our growing family. Now, with three children enrolled in our public schools and a fourth eagerly awaiting kindergarten, we are so proud and grateful to call this community our home. 

In my time on the island, and especially my two years on the board of the Bainbridge Schools Foundation, I have witnessed the amazing generosity and support that the BI community gives our students to 

help them reach their goals and pursue their passions. It’s because of the individuals that support BSF by volunteering their time, sharing their professional expertise, and donating generously that we are able to impact Every Student, Every Day. 

As we face the uncertainty of COVID-19, BSF promises to continue to find ways to support and expand the educational experience for our students. As students pursue their education both online and in the classroom, it is our commitment to ensure each and every student has the resources they need to succeed.
