Gil and Kay Sparks Scholarship Fund
The Gil and Kay Sparks Scholarship Fund was established in 2020 by their friends to recognize their long-standing involvement in the Wenatchee Valley community. Described as, “two highly effective and prolific community builders, who with little fanfare and great humility, have made enormous contributions to civic life in the (Wenatchee) valley. They leave us with not only a legacy of contribution but as an example of how anyone and everyone can make a positive difference”. The Wenatchee Valley is a better place because of Gil and Kay.
This scholarship supports graduating seniors from Westside High School in Wenatchee or a similar non-traditional school in Chelan, Douglas or Okanogan Counties who are seeking further education in an accredited educational program in the US.
