The Outstanding Friend of the College Award, which honors a person who’s made contributions to WVC through financial support, service, or a combination of both, is being presented to Peggy Ludwick.
The Distinguished Alumni of the Year award, being given to Malachi Salcido, recognizes outstanding achievements of alumni of Wenatchee Valley College.
