May 19, 2022
WALLA WALLA—The Walla Walla Community College Foundation is pleased to announce the Rasty E. and Nona F. Ketcherside Scholarship recipients for 2022‐2023. The generosity of lifetime Waitsburg farmers Rasty and Nona Ketcherside provide 15 Dayton, Prescott, and Waitsburg residents the opportunity to pursue their educational dreams at Walla Walla Community College this fall.
The Rasty E. and Nona F. Ketcherside Scholarship was established in 2002 with a donation from their estate to help support students from the surrounding areas. Rasty and Nona dedicated their lives to farming and the gentle care of their land and the animals on their farm between Dixie and Waitsburg.
Their lifelong care and concern for those around them extend to each of the 2022‐2023 Ketcherside Scholarship recipients, who will receive a scholarship to attend Walla Walla Community College.
The WWCC Foundation exists to eliminate financial barriers to students’ educational dreams. They raise, manage and grant financial support in order to assure student access, equity, and educational excellence at Walla Walla Community College. Thanks to generous support from the community, the WWCC Foundation awarded more than $600,000 in student scholarships and emergency assistance to hard‐working WWCC students in 2022‐2023.
