The Don C. Brunell Scholarship for Future Leaders
was established by the Association of Washington Business (AWB) to inspire and aid Washington’s future business leaders.
AWB members created the award to teach the youth of Washington state the role of business in society and to encourage their interests in business as a potential career path.
Don C. Brunell has been a staunch advocate of career and technical education in the state’s K-12, community college and four-year college and university systems. All of these programs have one thing in common, ensuring that the Washington business community has a highly skilled and available pool of business leaders to keep Washington state competitive well into the future.
