Success Foundation Spotlight
Thanks to all of our gracious donors at the Awards Dinner and Silent Auction last November, we were able to raise over $22,000! Funds benefiting the Success Foundation will go towards programs such as the Argonauts' Student Summer Program. In 2020, our program will include NASA's ROADS on Mars STEM Challenge followed by the Southside's own Window into Work program.

Our 2019 students, pictured above with Chairman Dan Mathews, will be returning as seasoned mentors in our 2020 program to aid our new Argonauts. In this way, we hope to create a peer support system that maximizes engagement and long-term impact.
Thank you to all of our members, volunteers, and donors
who make this program possible!

It's back! Go Post-Security
at SEA with SEA Visitor Pass
At Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), we're giving you a little more time with those who mean the most to you. Through our SEA Visitor Pass program, you can now enter the post-security side of the airport even if you're not traveling that day and savor those extra moments with friends and family.

Zachary Kohn used SEA Visitor Pass to surprise his now-fiance Lauryl Zenobi at the gate with flowers. How will you use SEA Visitor Pass?
Up to 100 non-ticketed visitors will be approved to go post-security between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. seven days a week. The program is free, and guests can apply online for the SEA Visitor Pass the same day they want to enter or up to seven days in advance, until the day’s maximum limit has been met. Last year’s pilot program was greeted with an enthusiastic response with over 1,100 participants in less than six weeks with a limit of 50 people per day. The SEA Visitor Pass program is intended for personal use and to enable approved visitors to spend time with friends and family or shop and dine at the airport or be an aviation geek to watch planes.
