Robert Wilson Arts SCHOLARSHIP

Robert Wilson was best known as an abstract painter and artist. His work has been shown at the prestigious Francine Seders Gallery in Seattle, WA, as well as in many galleries in New York, Connecticut, Chicago, and Atlanta. In and around his beloved adopted hometown of Wenatchee, WA, he showed at the Robert Graves Gallery, Gallery One, and Pybus Market, as well as at Two Rivers and Collapse Galleries. His highly-praised, arresting work is in collections all over the United States. It can be viewed at robertwilsonart.com.

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.
