Pete and Mary Houck SCHOLARSHIP
Pete and Mary Houck lived in and loved the Wenatchee Valley as their home for many years. After Pete’s passing in 2013, Mary moved to Highgate Senior Living Center. Since that time, the Houck family has appreciated the wonderful care provided to Mary by the staff at Highgate and have come to know and respect many of the staff members along the way. This scholarship was established to honor Pete and Mary and provide support for the Highgate staff to pursue their educational goals.
