The Ed Fund’s 26th Annual Celebration, Soaring to Excellence, was on Friday evening, May 16, 2014 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond.
The event featured State Senator Loni Hancock as the keynote speaker. Jennifer Peck of the Partnership for Children and Youth was the master of ceremonies.
The event recognized our Teaching Excellence Award winners:
- Keith Johnson, Music Director, El Cerrito High School
- Bruce McCormick, 8th grade English, Portola Middle School
- Adam Quintero, 8th grade science/7th grade leadership, DeJean Middle School
- Pat Simon, 5th grade, Montalvin Manor Elementary School
Also at this event, we honored the Ed Fund Scholarship recipients. More than 80 graduating seniors from the West Contra Costa Unified School District will receive an Ed Fund Scholarship to attend college this fall.
The event also served as the Ed Fund’s major fundraiser for the year. Guests had an opportunity to purchase many exciting items at our live and silent auctions! All proceeds supported West Contra Costa County public schools.
