Edna Fast Maguire WSU School of Veterinary Medicine SCHOLARSHIP

The Edna Fast Maguire WSU School of Veterinary Medicine Scholarship was established in 2019 to honor Edna Fast Maguire’s commitment to her alma mater, Washington State University.  Edna’s first husband, Robert “Bob” R. Fast graduated from WSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1942 and married Edna in 1944.  Edna and Bob moved to Hermiston, OR and opened and operated the Hermiston Veterinary Hospital. Bob passed in 1960 and Edna continued their business until 1996. They honored their lifelong love for animals by endowing a research lab at the WSU School of Veterinary Medicine and wanted to continue a legacy of philanthropic giving by starting this scholarship to be awarded to a student attending veterinary school at WSU.

"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.
