The Yamhill chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association awarded their 2018 scholarship to Jacqueline Frawley from Forest Grove High school at their annual banquet in McMinnville. This year they called it the “Stimson scholarship” because it was a donation from Stimson that helped the chapter be able to award the scholarship.
Jaqueline is an active outdoors person, harvesting two elk and two deer by the age of 17; and comes from a family with strong family traditions to the outdoors. Equally important she is very involved in many extracurricular activities ranging from sports to music. She will be attending Oregon State Honors College at OSU with a GPA of over 4.0. The scholarship selection committee was amazed by her background and unanimously agreed she is the kind of person we want on our side going forward.
The Yamhill chapter started its scholarship program in 2014. The objective was to encourage well rounded graduating seniors with a strong interest in natural resources and the outdoor recreational community to pursue a degree at an accredited institution of higher education. The applicants must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher and be a resident of Yamhill or Washington County. Besides completing the application form the applicant must select and provide an essay of either how they would protect Oregon’s wildlife and habitat or how they would promote and protect the hunting heritage of Oregon.
The Yamhill chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association is proud to support such motivated young people and hope that they can continue to do so in the coming years with the support of Stimson Lumber Company.
