Raquel Salinas, August 14, 1969 – April 23, 2018

Friends of Raquel, affectionately known as "The Raquettes", began the Raquel Salinas Memorial Scholarship to keep her name and mission alive. She worked tirelessly to help people find their path to success at The Evergreen State College and beyond. She helped people find connections that were deeper and more lasting than what was ever in her job description. It’s no exageration to say that Raquel saved lives and did much to make the world a better place for everyone.

We’ve hosted many fund raising events, begged, and networked with those who loved Raquel to raise enough money to reach a permanent endowment status for this scholarship -this means it’s forever. Every year another scholarship will be awarded in Raquel’s name to help someone along their way as they work through their educational pursuits. While we have reached our first goal of endowment, we continue to raise money to be able to offer larger scholarships. Please give what you can to help this noble cause in Raquel’s name at The Raquel Salinas Memorial Scholarship page at The Evergreen State College.
