Inga, Magnus and Knute Bakke Memorial Scholarship
The Inga, Magnus and Knute Bakke Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 to support students from the town of Leavenworth where Knute Aksel Bakke was born and raised. In 1953, Knute graduated from Leavenworth High School, where he had been a valued member of the ski team. After some time as a U.S. Army veteran who served in Korea, Knute returned home where he worked at the Leavenworth Ranger Station and retired after fulfilling his 30 years of service. He will be fondly remembered for his enthusiasm for golf, his colorful personality and this thoughtful legacy to his community. This scholarship supports graduating seniors or past graduates from Cascade High School seeking further education in an accredited trade, apprentice or certificate program in the US.
