2022 Lake Chelan Valley Scholarships Announced
Aug 5, 2022
The Lake Chelan Valley Scholarship Foundation (LCVSF) will award 20 scholarships this year to college bound seniors and previous awardees. Recipients are from Chelan Valley schools including Chelan High School (CHS) and Manson High School (MHS). Two graduates from MHS class of ’22 will receive awards: Anthony Martinez and Francisco Munoz; seven members of CHS class of ’22: Charlie Bordner, Savannah Gresham, Quinn McLaren, Beau Nordby, Liam Ross, Cassandra Sanchez and Reed Stamps; and eleven renewals: Colt Corrigan, Cody Fitzpatrick, Adrian Martinez, Emma McLaren, Odaliz Ordaz, Titus Petersen, Elise Rothlisberger, Sierra Rothlisberger, Casey Simpson, Quinn Stamps and Zoee Stamps.
Each recipient will receive $2500 for a total of $50,000 in awards this year. Checks will be presented to the recipients at the flagpole at Chelan Riverwalk Park at 10 am, Saturday, August 6.
LCVSF board member Barry M. Wise noted “This year’s pool of renewals was especially strong, with almost every previous recipient qualifying. And the small number of awards given to this year’s graduates was less a reflection of their academic achievement than of their success in attracting other scholarships.”
The LCVSF was made possible by Doug and Eva Dewar, who wished that their estates be used to help the children of the Chelan Valley. LCVSF was founded in 1991, and in that year five scholarships in the amount of $1000 each were awarded. The fund has grown substantially over the years from contributions from many people, but especially significant contributions from John Gladney, Ray Bumgardner, Don & Betty Schmitten, Marion McFadden, Virginia Husted, the Dick Slaugenhaupt Memorial and Irma Keeney. Now in its 32nd year, LCVSF has awarded over $725,000 to Chelan Valley students since its inception.
LCVSF accepts applications from residents of the Chelan valley for undergraduate education. The awards are renewable for up to four years. LCVSF welcomes applications from graduating high school seniors as well as current college students and adults returning to school.
The LCVSF board includes Betsy Kronschnabel (President), Arthur Campbell, III, Linda Mayer (Secretary), Sue Clouse, Barry M. Wise, Ph.D. and John Pleyte, M.D. (Treasurer). For further information, please contact Barry Wise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
