Helping Students Today
Invest In Their Tomorrow
The White Pass Scholarship Committee exists to help graduates in the White Pass School District achieve their post-secondary goals-- whether through a trade or vocational school, community college, or university. We are an active, volunteer group committed to serving our graduates as they move forward in their education. Our bylaws require committee membership from the three communities of Randle, Packwood, and Glenoma and we wouldn't have it any other way. We are a combined community making a difference. Alumni, business partners, community members and friends have been investing in our local youth through the White Pass Scholarship Fund for over 50 years.
Our Mission and Our Success
Awards Are Based On
Our mission is to continue to raise funds to support youth graduating in the White Pass School District as they see the post-secondary options that best meet their needs and help them achieve their educational goals. Realizing that just "leaving the valley" is a huge step for many students and their families, we have increased our support through check-ins and informal mentorships. This intentionality has caused us to see more students enrolling and sticking with it, knowing that they have a community behind them!
