Hood River Valley High School seniors went home on Thursday night with over $69,000 in Hood River County Education Foundation (HRCEF) funds for their post-secondary educations. In addition, the Education Foundation announced 12 recipients of HRCEF Continuing College scholarships totaling over $23,000, for a total donation of over $92,000 in HRCEF Scholarships this year.

17 FROM ‘17

Kaleidoscope feature on May 31 will feature thoughts from 17 graduates in the Class of 2017 from Hood River Valley High School and Horizon Christian School.

The Education Foundation manages 28 freshman scholarship funds and four continuing college scholarships, donated by Hood River residents and their friends and families. In addition, two freshman scholarships may be renewed for additional years.

Seventy-one different scholarships were awarded to 51 HRV students in the class of 2017, with some students receiving up to three scholarships. Twelve continuing college scholarships were awarded to HRVHS graduates for their 2017-18 sophomore, junior or senior years in college.

“The scholarships represent Hood River County so well. Scholarship donations come from many different families and civic groups, from the Cascade Locks Alumni Association to the Parkdale PTO,” said Pat Evenson-Brady, HRCEF Scholarship chair. “Twenty of our scholarships are memorials, and several are from local businesses. Our only regret is that we receive applications from so many deserving students and we don’t have scholarships for all of them.”

The Cascade Locks Alumni Association awarded five freshman scholarships and one continuing college scholarship this year, continuing a long tradition of support for post-secondary education to Cascade Locks students from their own community. New scholarships this year included the eight HRVHS AVID scholarships to support students who have been historically under-represented in college education. Funds for the AVID scholarships were raised primarily by HRVHS staff.

A unique HRCEF scholarships is the Nathan Hazlett Memorial Scholarship, which provides funding for flight training for a student wanting to be a professional pilot. The scholarship was not awarded in 2017.

Scholarship donations to HRCEF in any amount can be made online, via check or credit card, at www.hrcef.org, or by calling 541-387-5713.
