From the board and staff of Hood River County Education Foundation, heartfelt thanks to our supporters in the community. You’ve helped our students in so many ways in 2018:
- 66 students were awarded scholarships totaling more than $100,000
- The estate of Isabel Gilkerson established 3 new scholarships for $5,000 each with a large bequest
- 26 teachers were awarded Innovative Teaching Grants totaling more than $33,000 to enrich their students’ education
- Middle-school sports programs were made more available to students for the second year in a row of a three-year investment
- The student reading program Hood River Reads was supported again in 2018 including school visits by the author of this year’s book
We are honored to serve the students in the Hood River County school district and their families.
