Our View: Important night for Education Foundation

The Three Forks Education Foundation is a gigantic asset to the three local schools.

Whether it is their annual teacher grants or student scholarships, the foundation goes above and beyond to benefit students and teachers. The Three Forks community is lucky to have such a wonderful group who, year in and year out, step up to the plate for the betterment of local education.

Next week will allow area residents to help the foundation at their annual fundraiser scheduled for Thursday, March 16, at the school cafeteria. This fundraising dinner is a chance to help out an organization that enriches the students, schools, and staff.

The $15 for a single plate or $50 for a family will be used for a great cause and will be well spent. The silent and labor auctions are also great ways to help them out.

Every year, we are able to attend the awarding of grants to teachers. The teachers are always so happy to receive the extra funding; it means so much to them to provide students with additional learning opportunities.

We also attend the awarding of scholarships at the end of the year; this truly is a special ceremony. Higher education is not cheap, and the costs are rising. These scholarships are not only well deserved, but they are put to good use.

Three Forks is lucky to have such a fantastic foundation that does make a difference. Next Thursday at 6 p.m. is a great chance to help them out.
