Virgil V and Pearl E Gustin SCHOLARSHIP

Though limited in formal education, Virgil and Pearl Gustin were keen observers of life and loved to read. They felt very strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to gain an education and that young people who had a desire to improve, but had little money, deserved as much help as possible. Virgil and Pearl invested their lives and money wisely. They established this scholarship for students at Mansfield and Waterville High Schools through their wills because, having no children of their own, they wanted to pass the fruits of their labors on to students. Virgil and Pearl Gustin hope scholarship recipients will pass the same opportunity on to others who are in need of help, making a better future for individuals and communities.

"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.
