Eddie Bromiley Memorial SCHOLARSHIP

Edward O’Neal “Eddie” Bromiley was a devoted father, husband, son and friend who was trusted and loved by many.  Eddie was raised at the family’s ranch on Badger Mountain and it was there that he developed a strong work ethic and tough grit.  During grade school he was active in 4-H and in High School he was president of the FFA and participated in High School and Intercollegiate Rodeo, participating in both calf and team roping.  He continued his education at Central Washington University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Distribution Theory.  Eddie accepted a temp position at the Chelan County PUD in college and continued his career at the PUD after graduation.  He was an active member of the Local Union No. 77, the Shop Steward, and enjoyed teaching numerous apprenticeship courses for the PUD. The love of Eddie’s life was his wife, Laura.  Together they had two beautiful children and led a very full and busy life.  Eddie took great joy in helping family, friends and co-workers.  Tragically, Eddie’s life was cut short in a workplace accident at Rock Island Dam.

Xitlali Cruz


I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford. Since the beginning of my freshman year I have been involved with clubs such as Stanford’s Space Initiative (SSI) and the Society of Latinx Engineers (SOLE). In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.


Aero Methow Rescue Service


Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.


Chelan Douglas Volunteer Attorney Services


The grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

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.
