Della Ewalt exemplified what it meant to be a friend, colleague and leader. Della was always the first to volunteer. She helped OALPRP with training, by-laws and board development, and she was a diligent secretary for the organization. Della worked tirelessly for her local program. It won numerous awards and recognitions at all levels. Personally, Della loved the arts and traveling. She was always involved in some local theatre production. Even her education programs were filled with puppets, skits and songs. Della’s travels were inspiring to all. She traveled to many countries, learning about their cultures while sharing our culture. Della Ewalt touched so many lives, both at home and around the world. It is because of Della’s love of learning and life of adventure that OALPRP has instituted the Della Ewalt Enrichment Scholarship fund.
