zur Hausen SCHOLARSHIP
Edith and Elmar zur Hausen emigrated from Germany to the United States in 1954 and instantly fell in love with the Wenatchee Valley. Edith got a job as an accountant at a local firm and Elmar started work as an engineer at Rock Island Dam, both found a passion in becoming orchardist at their cherry and apple orchards in East Wenatchee. Edith and Elmar spent 66 wonderful years in the Wenatchee Valley enjoying the outdoors, their church community, and friends. The zur Hausen Scholarship started in 2020 to support students who are pursuing a degree in Engineering or Agriculture.
