Hayden Huston Centennial Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 1

Hayden Huston was a 1941 graduate of Pinedale High School. Because of the financial condition of his family, he was unable to go to college, so, instead, he joined the Navy and served throughout World War II, mostly overseas in the Pacific. He received the Purple Heart during his service and was on the battleship USS Missouri when the Japanese surrendered. Following the war, he began a career with the Diplomatic Service of the State Department and was stationed throughout the world until his retirement in 1989. Specialized training by the Navy taught him skills sought by the diplomatic services of the State Department and he joined that organization soon after the War. During his service abroad, he met his wife, Ivanka, in Yugoslavia. For the almost forty years' foreign service, he lived and traveled all over the world, fulfilling a long-standing dream. "When a boy back in Daniel desperate to get away and see the world, if I had ordered up the ideal job, it would have been just about what I experienced with the State Department," Huston said. "Hopefully, the Huston Centennial Scholarship will serve as a practical example to each graduate that if a boy from Daniel can do it-with hard work, perseverance, discipline, and a little luck-then others in similar situations can fulfill their dreams, and someday be in a position to contribute something similar to this scholarship to the benefit of their community," he added. Mr. Huston passed away in 2006. He created this scholarship as a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of his father, Tobe Huston, arriving in the Green River Valley.
