Delta County School District Superintendent Caryn Gibson and Business Manager Jim Ventrello find themselves super busy each Spring with budgeting and graduating 345 seniors from the District’s four high schools.  Helping these students graduate and launch in to their post high school careers or college is the School District’s focus. That is one of many reasons that a partnership with our Community Foundation made so much sense.”We are thrilled to be partnering with an organization that specializes in scholarship administration and long-term investing. We are in the education business, they are in the scholarship funding business.”

Our Community Foundation will be managing funds and selecting scholarship recipients in collaboration with a committee comprised of School District administrators and high school counselors. Our Community Foundation has five endowment funds that provide college scholarships to Delta County students and the School District has eight. Combined we will be providing $40,000 to 20 students from Delta County.
