Golden Scholarship applications available

The Mill City Volunteer Fire Department established a college scholarship fund to encourage further education in the fire, medical, and public safety field. The fund was established in memory of Clyde E. Golden, a Mill City Volunteer who died in the line of duty on June 27, 1982.

A charter nember, Clyde Golden joined the department in 1939, serving for 43 years. He held many positions during his membership, serving as a firefighter, chief and assistant chief, captain, volunteer president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary, public information officer and was a noted drillmaster that devoted much of his time working with young volunteers.

The annual $600 scholarship will be supplied through the Mill City Volunteer Fire Department.

The scholarship is available to Santiam High School seniors and alumni attending college.

Selection of scholarship winners will be based on scholarship, leadership, participation in school activities, service to the community, attitude towards education, an interview, essay, resourcefulness, financial need and fire department cadet status.

Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship may pick up an application at Santiam High School or the Mill City Fire Hall. The Mill City Fire Hall office hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

All applications should be placed in a sealed envelope and addressed to the Mill City Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship Committee. All applications must be completed and turned in by May 13. The Clyde E. Golden Scholarship winner will be notified by mail and an award certificate will be presented at the Senior Graduation ceremonies. Any questions should be directed to the Mill City Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship Committee Chairman by calling the Mill City Fire Hall at 503-897-2390.
