     2017 SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE    



The SKFR Volunteer Association is proud to provide community scholarships. We have provided community members with financial assistance for higher education since 1999.
We invite you to apply to our $1,000 Craig Helmholz scholarship. The 2017 application is now available to print. Look for a link to the pdf form below.

In Memoriam of "Craig Helmholz"

Craig Helmholz inspired our program. Craig began volunteering with SKFR (Dist 7) in 1995. He was exceptional because he continued to serve the community through the department even after beginning his battle with cancer.
Sadly, Craig passed away in November 1999.
Craig is seen above; posing with his girlfriend Nicole at a local parade and enjoying some leisure activity at home.

Marie reported on her status in 2010.
"I am in my fourth year at the University of Washington, and I'll be graduating next winter with a double degree in Public Health (BS) and Medical Anthropology (BA) and a minor in Spanish. My time so far at the UW has been pretty action-packed. In my first year I rowed for the UW Novice Women's Crew Team and studied abroad for a summer in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am currently an intern at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center with a group that studies the effects of diet and exercise on breast cancer prevention. In addition, I am completing my senior thesis in the department of Anthropology on dietary change in immigrant populations in Seattle. My future plans include a Master of Public Health that focuses on community-level nutrition. I hope to spend my life working on chronic disease prevention through diet. As I have experienced deaths in my family due to cancer, I am grateful for the opportunity to work in this field.
I want to thank you again for making it possible for me to take advantage of so many opportunities, and for getting in touch again! I am really proud to come from such a wonderful community."

The winners of the 2003 Scholarships are...

Congratulations, Dustin Johnson and Brandi Lindberg!!


They each received a $500.00 scholarship from the KCFD 7 Volunteer Association. (Above photo) Scholarships presented by volunteer members Chuck Kuhn and Scott Lucke.

Brandi reported back to the Association with an update in April of 2009.
"Thanks to the generous monetary support I received from the scholarship In Memoriam of Craig Helmholtz, I was able to graduate from college in four years, without debt. Now I work in higher education, and I have an opportunity to positively impact college student’s lives and help them navigate the same academic, social, and financial issues I experienced as a student. Without generous support from my community, I may not have been able to get the education I did, and I may not have been able to help other’s the way that I can today.
Additionally, the monetary support I received for college made it more possible for me to be more focused on my academics and involved in community service activities instead of working all of the time to pay the bills. I think that Craig would have been proud to know that his memory allowed me to be involved in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life,” to raise money and awareness about cancer, both as a participant and as a team captain multiple times during my college career. In this way, his memory affected many others than just myself, and I know it will continue to do so with future recipients of this wonderful scholarship."

In Memoriam of "Chief Kirk"


We regret to report that the Chester Kirk scholarship has been discontinued due to funding.

Chief Kirk was also a noted member of Fire District 7. He is a WW II veteran who began volunteering as a firefighter in 1941 and was Chief for District 7 between 1966 and 1982. He past away in 2003. His family made a donation to our association and asked to carry a scholarship in his name.
Cheif Kirk is seen above at the fire station.
