The North Tillamook County Women’s Association Scholarship was originated by Jan Markle in 2007 to recognize graduating female students of Neah-Kah-Nie High School. The organization’s motto, Women helping women of all ages and circumstances help make lives, families and community stronger, guides other grants that are given to several community groups.
