WAEF Selects Grant Winners 5/7/2012
The Washington Apple Education Foundation Farmworker Education Committee has selected a pair of local organizations to receive grants for their activities fostering and promoting scholastic success for farm workers and their families.
The grant selection committee made award decisions focusing on the four key priorities of the program: to reduce high school drop-out rates and improve higher level education achievement rates of at-risk students; to improve long-term learning outcomes through access to effective early education programs; to increase economic self-sufficiency and further generational upward mobility; and to improve cross-cultural communications through English language literacy. 
2012 Grant Recipients include the Orondo School District’s Ready for Kindergarten program which  received $1600 to support involvement for sixteen families and the Adult English as a Second Language Program @ Lake Chelan School District was selected to receive $2900 for its parent empowerment program serving parents in Chelan and Manson school districts.
WAEF partners with others in the community to provide funding for the Farmworker Education Program grants.  Thank you to corporate donors Chelan Fresh and the Jim Matson Memorial Fund for contributions that make these awards possible.
