Announcing 2012 Awards

2012 Inaugural Year for JoAnn Jeter Memorial Diversity Scholarship

Though Bonneville Power Administration lost our dedicated Diversity Program Manager earlier this year, JoAnn Jeter’s memory and her commitment to diversity is remembered through the establishment and administration of this scholarship fund. Applicants with a diverse background were encouraged to apply last spring and an independent panel of area educators had 13 applications to evaluate. The Jeter family thought there was no better way to keep Jo’s spirit alive in the effort to support and encourage these students. The Pacific Northwest Federal Credit Union account 131978 remains an ongoing avenue for charitable donations. A point of contact for the scholarship is Karen Graves Pyrch (503-230-3194).

Two scholarships have been awarded to:

  • $1,000 JoAnn Jeter Memorial Diversity Scholarship - Siena Lopez-Johnston
  • $500 JoAnn Jeter Memorial Diversity Scholarship - Derek Littlejohn
