The memorial...

  
This annual scholarship was established by  grants from the Woodinville Rotary Club in memory of Woodinville resident Peg Phillips, the founder of Woodinville Repertory Theater. Peg gained notoriety through her acting role as Ruth Ann Miller in the hit television series, Northern Exposure .

   Peg retired from a career in accounting to take up acting at age 65, attending the drama school at the University of Washington before landing the storekeeper role in the TV show. She appeared in a number of movies, TV guest performances and even commercials.

   She was a resident of Woodinville from 1977 until her passing in November of 2002. She was known for her passion for theater, a down home persona living in a 100-year-old unpretentious farm house where she gathered a host of friends one day and decided to start the repertory theater -- stating "We have enough malls and stores in Woodinville. It's time for some culture."

   She was the first and only honorary member invited to membership in Woodinville Rotary.
