Money is flowing to Teton County students.
The Fund for Public Education announced Monday that the Teton County Scholarship Program had named the recipients for this year's spate of awards. In all, 125 students applied for 219 scholarships administered through the partnership between the nonprofit, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole and Teton County School District No. 1, with a grand total of $704,300.
“Thanks to the generosity of our community, students can take the next steps knowing that we are all supporting them each step of the way," Superintendent Gillian Chapman said in a press release. "These scholarships make a difference for our students being able to dream big and go far."
Sixty-six donors gave money to the program, which awards scholarships that cover everything from small stipends for books to full rides.
Scholarship Night, the annual celebration of students who receive the awards, is canceled again this year because of COVID-19 precautions. However, if you'd like to see the names of the winners in the News&Guide this week, the list can be found on pages 10 and 11 of tomorrow's Valley section.
