The Ed Fund’s Annual Excellence in Education Gala

The Ed Fund’s Annual Excellence in Education Gala is a wonderful opportunity for the entire West Contra Costa County community to come together in celebration and support of our public schools. Every year, usually in May, The Ed Fund honors the Teaching Excellence Award winners, the Distinguished Citizen Award winner and the Ed Fund Scholarship winners to celebrate academic achievement in our schools.

In 2012, we honored the following Teaching Excellence Award winners:

  • Joshua Hastings, Richmond High School
  • Maria Saxton, Washington Elementary School
  • Abigail Sims-Evelyn, LoVonya DeJean Middle School
  • Tracey Singh-Poole, DeAnza High School

In May 2012, The Ed Fund also honored the Distinguished Citizen Award winner, Todd Groves. Mr. Groves has volunteered countless hours to support Portola Middle School and El Cerrito High School both as a volunteer and coordinator for the WriterCoach Connection.

Over 60 of the 80 Ed Fund Scholarship finalists were also in attendance.

Stay tuned for the photo album of the event! The Ed Fund would like to thank everyone who supported us by attending.

A special thanks goes to our event sponsors, who made it possible to put on a very successful event. Click here to see a complete list of the sponsors of the 24th Annual Excellence in Education Gala.
