Cakes for College SCHOLARSHIP

Ben Paine received a scholarship from the Community Foundation of NCW as a senior at Wenatchee High School in 1995. As an adult, Ben and his family chose to give back to the community that gave to him by starting a foundation to raise money for local students to attend college. The Keep it in the Valley Foundation’s 150 volunteers sell funnel cakes at the Apple Blossom food fair each year and donate all of the proceeds to the Cakes for College Scholarship Fund. With this scholarship, they wish to assist an aspiring, qualified high school senior in pursuit of a college education at Wenatchee Valley College. The ideal candidate is an engaging individual with capable communication skills who has been, and continues to be, involved in school activities and the community. Most importantly, the student aspires to goals requiring an advanced education through matriculation of a college degree.

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
