Susan Yaw Memoria SCHOLARSHIP

Susan Yaw, President of North Central UniServ from 2013 to 2016, was a strong advocate for continuing education. She established programs in her district, Quincy, and in the Council to assist educators in acquiring their NBCT or ProTeach certificates. Susan brought a number of classes to North Central Washington that focused on evaluation and special education and opened opportunities for members to receive ongoing education in our local area and at a low or reasonable cost.

Susan lost her battle with cancer in August of 2016. North Central Washington UniServ Council established this scholarship in her memory to assist members who want to pursue NBCT, ProTeach, Master’s degrees, or other professional development, or are paraprofessionals getting a teaching degree.

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.
