Art Rempel Scholarship Information
Blue Mountain Audubon Society has established a scholarship with Whitman College to honor the memory of Arthur Rempel, late emeritus professor of biology at the college and a pioneer leader of the local Audubon society.
Dr Rempel, a life member of National Audubon, helped found the Walla Walla chapter. He was, for nearly three decades before his death in May of 2007, a major contributor to chapter programs on birds and nature and organizer for a number of successful activities in local conservation. The Society’s nature trail at Fort Walla Walla is named for him.
The Rempel Scholarship will award five hundred dollars each year to a Whitman junior majoring in biology with the money to be applied toward that student’s senior year tuition.
Donations designated for the Rempel Scholarship may be made payable to Blue Mountain Audubon and mailed to:
