Lee Bofto Honorary SCHOLARSHIP

Lee Bofto was a coach and teacher at Wenatchee High School from 1965-1984. In 2004, former students of his established the Lee Bofto Honorary Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation to honor the tradition of excellence that he built during his tenure at WHS. Lee’s insight, patience, understanding, and energy created a stir in his students to strive for excellence within themselves, both in the classroom and on the athletic field.

This scholarship is designed to award a Wenatchee High School senior who may not necessarily be a student with the highest GPA or the most athletic ability, but a student who has been involved in sports at some level, has financial need, and demonstrates the tenacity and desire to continue their education. Most importantly, the ideal student has the heart, soul, and perseverance to reach for and achieve goals they have set for themselves.

"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.
