Terry Selby Memorial Scholarship

Terry Selby was a Forestry teacher at Philomath High School from 1986 until 2002. Through education and hard work, Terry spent his adult life teaching forestry skills and sharing his love of nature and the sciences. He believed that every student could follow their passion and succeed with hard work and education, as he had.  The purpose of this scholarship is to assist an outstanding Forestry student in his/her pursuit of further education. This scholarship is a gift from the Selby family. It is a $1,000, non-renewable, scholarship given to a Philomath High School graduating senior. This scholarship will be awarded and then distributed to the recipient upon the receipt, by the Philomath Community Foundation, of proof of paid tuition at a 4-year university, community college, or vocational/technical school within one year of the award.

The Philomath Community Foundation will award the $1,000 scholarship. Priority will be placed on students who have completed the School of Forestry or Forest Management at Philomath High School. Finalists may be invited for a brief interview.
