Native Daughters of Washington Territorial Pioneers SCHOLARSHIP
Founded in 1937, the Native Daughters of Washington Territorial Pioneers, set out to collect historical stories from pioneering women to share with their communities. For the last, almost century, this women’s group has been interviewing, researching and collaborating to preserve the rich history of our local pioneers dating back to 1890. From this dedicated work of generations, a book titled Pioneer Dreams was written, published and a copy now sits in the Library of Congress for others to learn from and enjoy. Today the group mostly shares their stories with nursing homes and the Wenatchee Valley Museum, lending their knowledge especially during the museum’s cultural festival. This scholarship was set up with the idea of looking ahead at what lies ahead for the community and providing financial aid to those students who have been accepted into Wenatchee Valley College’s RN, BSN or CNA program.
