The Driven Decade Scholarship Winners

Yates & Wheland’s Driven Decade Scholarship was created to reward those in our community who have a clear vision of where they see themselves in the future. We received tons of applications, each highlighting their determination and ambition.

After careful consideration, we are excited to announce Kylee Silber as the 2021 Yates & Wheland’s Driven Decade Scholarship Winner!

2021 Winner: Kylee Silber

Kylee Silber is from San Diego, California. She went to Baylor University for a year and a half but decided to continue her college education at Gonzaga University. So now she calls Spokane, Washington her second home. At both schools, she has been pursuing a special education major. Kylee has wanted to be a special education teacher since she was in fourth grade, so she feels very grateful to be able to be learning how to be successful in that. After college, Kylee hopes to teach kindergarten-2nd grade moderate-severe special education, likely in Seattle or Southern California.

Reaction: I am so thankful that I was chosen to receive this scholarship. A college education is crucial to my future as a special education teacher, and receiving this scholarship is helping me financially to obtain that. I cannot overstate my gratitude to Yates & Wheland for choosing me to receive this scholarship.
