Oregon Logging Conference Foundation Hands Out Round of Student Scholarships

Tue August 24, 2021 - West Edition #18
Oregon Logging Conference


More than $40,000 in financial assistance has been awarded to 20 students by the Oregon Logging Conference Foundation (OLCF). Each of those recipients represents the next generation of those who will carry on in the logging and forestry industry. Each student qualified to receive this financial assistance to support them in their educational pursuits.

Of special note, recipient Justin Helgren was awarded the Carl Welle Memorial Scholarship. Helgren is studying Forest Management at Oregon State University.

The Carl Welle Memorial Scholarship fund was established to honor Welle, who graduated from Thurston High School and pursued a career as a paramedic until he bought his first D-4 Cat and found his true passion for logging. He turned his passion into owning his own company, Riverridge Excavating and Logging. It is the hope of Welle's family that the recipients of this scholarship will pursue forestry, natural resources, or other careers that involve a life spent working in and enjoying the forests. Welle's family believes this is a way of paying tribute to Carl.
