A Giving Community

Thanks to all that have given so much this Holiday season!  Whether it was filling up a Salvation Army red kettle, to a box of gifts for Toys for Tots, or bag of food for the local Food Bank, it is amazing how much is given to those in need.  Just had an interview with another amazing member of our community, Barbara Ross, who run the Nevada Joint Union High School District scholarship program.  She puts so much energy into her job that has put at least $12 Million into the hands of our local students in scholarships and grants each year.  She also reminded me that not all awards are granted because they go unclaimed!!  So parents…make sure your students get their applications done for the district scholarship program.  If you need more info, contact Barbara Ross at bross@njuhsd.com.
