Wilf Woods | WVC student center

Last Saturday was "groundbreaking time" for the new student center at Wenatchee Valley College, which honored Edna Maguire and her late husband Jack.  She donated $1 million for the project, whose cost is $6.2 million.  The Maguires have been long supporters of the college.  In 1995 they gave a $200,000 endowment which supports two "full ride" scholarships.  Dr. Jim Richardson told me that the college is currently enrolling more than 700 high school students in the "running start" program, a total of about a quarter of the student numbers.
