With Dr. Faviola Barbosa, sponsored by Rachel Evey
Washington Apple Education Foundation (WAEF) provides college scholarships to students from the tree fruit industry. Through the Beyond the Scholarship Program, students are supported with wraparound services to secure degree completion.

Faviola Barbosa worked within the Washington State Community & Technical Colleges system for over 18 years. She serves as the new executive director of the Washington Apple Education Foundation.

Her passion has been to promote higher education to students from an early age. She believes this position is a perfect fit for her and stated, “I am so excited about the opportunity to promote access and support to students from the tree fruit industry pursuing higher education. Furthermore, I look forward to working with such an amazing team and continuing to strengthen the WAEF mission.”


Program Last Week - Cannon Gold Mine with Diane Groody.  
Diane gave a fascinating account of the amazing story of Wenatchee gold mining during the 1980's.  She was one of the 2 Asamera geologists on the original exploration crews that came to the Wenatchee to look for gold in 1981.  She supervised the drilling, sampling, and mapping of the Cannon Mine.  She gave input on ground and grade control plus calculated the reserves and royalty payments at the underground mine at the south end of Miller Street until 1989.  She was the first and only woman mine geologist in the USA at that time.

SERVICE ABOVE SELF.   Want to volunteer for WVC scholarship Review?

Fall quarter at WVC starts in just a few weeks! Here at the WVC Foundation, we’re getting ready to award another $100,000 in scholarships! Your help reading and scoring applications was critical to our successful awards cycle last spring. Are you available to volunteer this fall?  Here are some details:

  • Shorter timeline: Applications will be read September 26 – October 9. This is only a two week window. The scholarship application remains open to students through the first week of classes to ensure that all WVC students have an opportunity to apply. We also want to notify recipients ASAP so that they can use their scholarship for fall quarter.
  • Same number of apps: Based on the number of applications we are expecting to receive, we are estimating that each reviewer will be assigned 20-25 apps. However, this is dependent on the number of reviewers that volunteer. Even if you can only read a few applications, please consider volunteering. Every volunteer makes a difference!
  • Training Provided

Dear Readers.   Those of you who regularly read this column were no doubt disappointed that it did not appear last week. Dear Applesauce took a break in protest of the unfair fining of our wonderful Judy Connor at the hands of some ambulance chaser who DA will not give the pleasure of naming in this missive. Rumors of DA being absent as a result of excessive partying over the long weekend are entirely unfounded (however, not entirely untrue).
