Jack Bartroff was the son of Waldo the Barber and Wanda the Kindergarten teacher (who was also a graduate of Cashmere High School in 1924.) Jack was born in 1941 at their home on Woodring Street. He was Student Body president in 1959 and a valuable member of the Bulldog Basketball team. During several summers Jack worked for Richard "Tiny" Graves at the fruit stand.

He graduated from the University of Washington and pledged the SAE fraternity. He made a very important decision during his junior year of college and that was to become a dentist and attended the UW School of Dentistry - this created the need to have practice patients. His future wife, Barbara Roane, had transferred to the UW and enrolled in the dental hygienist program. She became the "guinea pig" for the future Dr. Jack. They were both smitten and married soon after commencement in 1967.

Jack had joined the Navy ROTC program and began his military dental service after the wedding and this led the newly weds to serve at a Navy base in Japan.

After the Navy Jack was able to attend a new Orthodontist program at UCLA. This decision was very important because he decided that he wanted to help his patients improve their appearance and gain more confidence. This career included 3 separate practices with many positive results for his patients.

The Bartroffs retired in 1995 to Coranado Island near San Diego. and Jack played tennis almost daily, plus biking, walking to church and the local business district.

How does a boy from Cashmere parlay his early experience as a child, his university education, his military and dental training into the big world of Southern California and still remember his home town and the excellent early education it provided? He was definitely very proud of his town! Like his big sister, Barbara Tilly, he believed in higher education and his family is happy to offer this scholarship in hopes that another boy has the chance to have the opportunities that Jack received.

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.
