Gene “Sarge” Huber Band SCHOLARSHIP

After 29 years as band director at Wenatchee High School, Gene “Sarge” Huber retired his baton. A school superintendent summed up Sarge: “A great definition of love is someone who helps people gain victories without them knowing you have helped them. A lot of kids are out there with victories because of Sarge.”  Sarge always thought the band students were overlooked regarding scholarships and wanted an emphasis on those who spent as much time in the band program as athletes did in athletics, but failed to have as much access to scholarships. It was with this in mind that he established the scholarship during the last months of his life with his wife, June.

  1. Graduating senior of Wenatchee High School

"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.
