Scholarship Update

May 13th, 2016|

Scholarships for Graduates
 

At this time each year, several Corbett Education Foundation (CEF) board members have the daunting task of matching donor provided scholarship criteria with the student applications.  In most years since its inception, CEF has been able to award a scholarship to every qualified applicant. 

This year, however, the matching process has been more difficult and precarious due to the volume of applications received and dwindling financial resources.  Board members are working to expand our donor base in order to ease this shortfall.  If you, or anyone you know, are interested in providing assistance to our graduates, please let us know as soon as possible.

We still have a few more days before the final cuts have to be made.  Let’s help these students further their education; no contribution is too small or too large.

Bob and Dona Layton

April 9th, 2016|

It is our great privilege to proudly introduce you to Dona and Bob Layton.

Thank you, Bob and Dona

 

Each year the Doug Layton Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a Corbett graduate or past graduate.  Dona and Bob generously make this scholarship available as a tribute to their son who was a past Corbett student.  Residents of the community as a married couple for 60 years, Dona and Bob have been familiar faces in our area for a long time and both are Corbett High School alumni.

Dona Layton, volunteer and donor.

 

Dona was known to many students while working for the Corbett School District in the school and superintendent’s offices for 30 years, retiring in 1995.  Prior to retirement, Bob was often seen driving dump truck or heavy equipment in our community as a member of the Multnomah County Road Department for over 34 years.  Besides being dedicated scholarship donors, both Dona and Bob are tireless volunteers.  Dona has been a CEF board member since the organization’s inception and currently holds the position of secretary.

Bob has been a member of Multnomah County Rural Fire Protection District No. 14 for over 57 years and served as chief for 4 years.  Thank you, Dona and Bob! Your many, many contributions to our community and the CEF scholarship program are greatly appreciated!

Recent News

April 9th, 2016|

We are currently entering one of the busiest portions of our activity calendar – the awarding of scholarships.  While students are submitting applications to request a scholarship, donors are dipping into their pockets to provide funds, and CEF board members are ferreting out ways to bring both of these pieces together.  The announcement of graduating seniors who will receive a CEF scholarship will be shared at the upcoming graduation ceremony.  Past graduates receiving a scholarship will get confirmation of their award via letter during the month of June.

Both student groups will have acceptance requirements that must be met by September 1st so that checks can be mailed to the appropriate colleges and universities as school sessions resume in late September.  Donors, Students, Parents, and Friends, be sure to check this website frequently to stay on top of our activities.

Donor Connections

March 24th, 2016|

 

We could not issue three to four dozen scholarships to students each year if your generous friends and neighbors didn’t tighten their belts and provide these scholarships year after year. Take a minute and imagine what it takes to provide money to enable a young person you don’t even know to continue his/her education or training. Now imagine the commitment required to continue to renew their scholarships obligation for that student for up to six years (and then go on to support another student).

We intend to introduce you to these remarkable people – one at a time.  This week we honor the owner of the scholarship.

Good News:

We are making changes to our website.  Our new platform is more intuitive, personal device friendly, social site interactive, blog capable, email-friendly and able to safely and securely receive both one time and regular donations.

More Good News:

We intend to keep you informed about our C.E.F. world via regular reports on this site and posting on our Facebook page.

Not So Good News:

While the new corbetteducationfoundation.org website is up and running, very little content has been added to date.  Not to worry:  We plan to work hard to correct this.  We will notify you as we add content that you will find both interesting and entertaining.
