Each year, the Washington PUD Association has a drawing from among its members for a $1,000 scholarship for high school seniors of PUD employees that will be attending a college next year. This year, the name of Breanna Magee, daughter of Daniel Magee, Chief Operator at the Wells Hydroelectric Project, was drawn from several entries. Breanna’s name will be entered as the Douglas County PUD candidate for the Walkley Educational Scholarship. Breanna is a senior at Chelan High School. The actual drawing is scheduled each year to be held in December.
