In memory of John Arum, a climber who died in the North Cascades in 2010, six climbing rangers received specialized training that they otherwise would not have received. As a result, they are more confident and comfortable serving the public in the unique roles that they have.

The John Arum Memorial Scholarship was established to enhance the NCNP Ranger Division’s ability to thoroughly train rangers especially in the field of search and rescue (SAR), emergency medical services (EMS), environmental and park protection fields and other related skills.
