James Elwyn Memorial SCHOLARSHIP

The James Elwyn Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2020 by his beloved wife, Kathy, family and friends in remembrance of  James’s long-standing involvement in the Wenatchee Valley swimming community. James was a much-loved social studies teacher at Wenatchee High School, as well as the coach for both girls’ and boys’ swim teams.  He had the privilege of coaching each of his three children; Kayli, Connor and Austin.  James lead multiple boys and girls swim teams to top ten finishes at State and was named Coach of the Year by several organizations.  James’s sense of humor, combined with his passion for teaching and coaching, earned him the love and loyalty of many.  He had a positive impact on multitudes of swimmers, students and his family.

"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.
