With donations from family and friends, P.E.O. Chapter BS of Chewelah, Washington has established a memorial scholarship through the P.E.O. Foundation in honor of Peggy Meyer. Income generated from the fund will be used to award an annual scholarship to a deserving local high school graduate.
Peggy Meyer was an active member of the Chewelah Chapter of P.E.O. and supported fund raising for local, state and international P.E.O. Projects. She was active in the community and organized fund raising for local charities through her annual ‘Rowdys R Us’ golf tournaments. The monies generated from her ‘Rowdys’ tournaments have helped provide thousands of dollars for those in need within our community. Peggy was influential in starting the tennis program at Jenkins High School and served as head tennis coach for many years. Peggy passed away in June 2017 after a year- long battle with a rare form of myeloma. At the time of her passing she was employed at a local medical clinic.
