AVHRA Human Resource Scholarship SCHOLARSHIP

In 2014, AVHRA opened a scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of NCW to support graduating seniors and current college students from Chelan, Douglas, Kittitas or Okanogan county high schools who are pursuing a career in the Human Resources field.
