The Washington Apple Education Foundation held its annual luncheon on Monday at the Wenatchee Convention Center and recognized outstanding students from North Central Washington who have received scholarships.

The amount of money the industry has pumped into scholarships is impressive. This year’s total was $650,000, up more than $200,000 from the previous year. Some of the recipients come from families in which education is an expectation but the vast majority are from families where that hasn’t been the history. Lots of the Latino students are the first in their family to go to college.
