Linda M Safar Memorial SCHOLARSHIP

Linda M. Safar was a lawyer, teacher, and part-time judge, but most importantly, a loving mother and wife. She believed in, and practiced, providing social justice in her personal and professional lives. She treated all people with dignity and respect and made everything she touched better for others. She was open and honest about her own strengths and personal challenges, which inspired others to examine their own potential and areas in which they might grow. The Linda M Safar Memorial Scholarship honors a Wenatchee High School student who is empathetic with a zest for life, high integrity, respect for students and teachers, and is driven by a code of moral responsibility to do good for others (along with a sense of humor and humility) no matter what their academic interest or chosen career field.

Scholarship Recipient

"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.
