Everett Haskell was born on September 19, 1920 in Manchester, South Dakota. He moved to Beloit when he was two years old where he resided until his death on December 7, 1995. He served the community as a member of the city council with great distinction and he had perfect attendance for over 30 years. He was elected city council president ten times.
His life was an example of caring and unselfish service to the community he loved so much. It is because of his remarkable record of public service that the Everett and Diana Haskell Scholarship has been established.
