Vernonia Education Foundation Update

January 21, 2014

The Vernonia Education Foundation (VEF) Board met January 9th to discuss policy and events for the upcoming year. The recent Sports Initiative letter that was sent out by VEF Board member Jim Eckland (VHS ‘62) and his wife Kathy (VHS ‘65) was very successful. The Sports Initiative has to date raised more than $50,000, which, along with the nearly $10,000 raised by the Give Back Bash (sponsored by the VHS Class of ’73), should enable us to get the softball field at the new site completed this summer. The district’s Athletic Director, Gordon Jarman will be working with sports field designers and others to get the specifications ready for the work to start this summer. If you have suggestions or ideas on who could help as a volunteer or to provide input please contact the district office at 503-429-5891.
