Astraia Pulliam Memorial Scholarship Fund for Nursing


(2019) Astraia Pulliam grew up in the town of Bonny Doon in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California. A bright and vibrant life, she set forth to spread the gift of health and healing, becoming a yoga instructor in San Francisco for several years. Along her journey she was blessed to become a mother to her cherished first born son. Her ambition to help heal never ceased, leading her to move to Humboldt County and attended College of the Redwoods nursing program. While raising her young son as a single mother, she completed her nursing degree in 2014. She started work on the Medical Surgical Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she quickly gained a reputation as a dedicated and tender nurse who cared and advocated for all of her patients with loving kindness. One of her signature traits was her bright red lipstick. Astraia was the kind of nurse who went above and beyond, buying red lipstick for a patient who was in need of cheering up. Astraia was a beautiful person who had an amazing personality, a strong will, an infectious laugh and a smile that would make your day. She would smile her beautiful red lips at the thought that this scholarship is helping single moms achieve their goal of becoming nurses.

Ka'mt'e:m Scholarship


(2019) Many generations ago, along the Klamath River, there lived a wise woman who wove the most beautiful baskets known to humankind. Her baskets were woven so tight that water could not penetrate them. She was aging and had many experiences to share. Through prayer, she began to weave a basket for the people. The wise woman worked day after day, weaving, praying, and singing. As her strong hands moved gracefully over her materials, she shared a story to be retold, a song to be sung again, and a lesson to be learned. When she finished, she had created a large beautiful basket bowl. She called this basket Ka'mt'e:m because it held the treasures of the people. She placed the basket in the river at Weitspus (a Yurok village), where two rivers join together, and stood silent as the basket began its journey. The basket seemed to tip-toe across the gentle breakers; it moved along more quickly as it hit the swift currents, and swirled ever so purposeful into the eddies. Round and round, the basket turned through the trials and tribulations of the water and then burst free into the swift, shallow flow of the river. All life that swam below watched with great interest. Although the villagers lived within their own unique environment, each village anticipated the basket’s presence. The old woman understood the human need for knowledge and contribution. As such, the people picked up the basket, rejoiced in the lessons, and they too added prayers and allowed the basket to continue its journey. After many stops, the basket reached Requa, the mouth of the Klamath River. It made three final spins, reflecting a ceremonial journey, and drifted its way over the rough water of the mouth and into the belly of the Pacific Ocean. All that the basket had to offer made its final journey into the sunset, where it exists eternally. This scholarship is for California Indigenous students with a path to contribute, protect, and advocate for Ka'mt'e:m (the treasures of Indigenous people). Applicants m

Geri van Emmerik Memorial Scholarship


(2018) Geri van Emmerik counseled thousands of students—and friends—throughout her career in education. To every meeting and workshop, Geri brought an unmatched energy, thinking through every detail, treating each situation as though it were the most important she ever attended.

Our dreams were hers, and Geri took whatever time necessary to help—she was always there for us. Geri’s devotion was transcendent. And to her friends and family, Geri was a charismatic, funny, brilliant, and generous woman with a knack for knowing when you needed a pep talk, a helping hand, an ear to bend, or a delicious cookie. To commemorate Geri’s friendship and dedication to students chasing their dreams, this scholarship will be awarded to a McKinleyville High School senior planning on any post–high school training or college.

Joseph E. Davey Memorial Fund


(2018) Joseph Davey was a nearly-native of Humboldt County, born in Colorado but residing in Eureka from an early age. He attended St. Bernard’s schools, College of the Redwoods, and graduated from HSU. Joe enjoyed watching and playing several sports. In his young adulthood, he discovered soccer and it became his passion. He played in co-ed adult leagues for many years and, when his children came of soccer-playing age, he coached. After his sons moved on to advanced levels of play, Joe continued to coach youth teams. Joe was witness to the difference that the team sport experience can make in a child’s life and strived to make every child a success. The Joseph E. Davey Memorial Fund provides funding for children whose family financial circumstances make it difficult for them to participate in organized youth soccer. Preference is given to children in foster care. Funds may be used for league fees, equipment, and travel expenses. Joseph Davey passed away from cancer in 2017.
