Scholarships available for Jenkins High School students…
Applications for the 2019 Peggy Meyer Memorial Scholarship are now available at the counselors office at Jenkins High School.
This scholarship is awarded annually to a female with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and is available to seniors at Jenkins High school or the Chewelah Alternative High School. The scholarship was founded by P.E.O. Chapter B.S. of Chewelah in the fall of 2017. It is established thru the P.E.O. Foundation and has been funded with the help of the Meyer Family, Chapter B.S., and contributions from the community. Those contributing to this scholarship wanted to establish a permanent way to honor Peggy’s legacy of giving to the community.
Peggy was an active member of Chapter B.S. and a generous supporter of many projects in our community. The P.E.O. Sisterhood is an international, non profit organization founded 150 years ago and is dedicated to bringing increased educational opportunities for women. The first annual Peggy Meyer Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Elizabeth Grubb in June of 2018.
