It’s been a whirlwind year for us as your Co-presidents, and we want to thank you all for your cooperation! This year we’re all very proud that a new endowed scholarship in honor of Marie Van Asperen will benefit future teachers in the Liberal Studies major and/or credential students. The first award will be made next year.
Additionally, our two fundraisers, the Silent Auction at the Holiday party and SLO Little Theater performance of The Nerd, brought in collectively almost $2,300 for our ongoing scholarships. We’ve also awarded a $500 grant to student parent Lisa Lemos Jensen to help her with childcare expenses at the ASI Children’s Center.
And we’ve revised and updated the By-laws that will be voted on by membership at the June
24th picnic social.
Best of all, we are still friends! Hope to see you soon!
