What a day! So exciting to go to the mailbox and find a check for $5,000 to support field trips in our schools. Our grant writer has been busy and we’re here to share the news.
BNSF funds will be used for transportation costs for middle and high school field trips to cultural, educational and career-oriented destinations in the 2015-2016 school year. These may include the following: trips to urban art institutions like museums, symphonies and plays: trips to colleges in Portland and Vancouver; science field studies in nearby wetlands; and career-focused trips to local and regional employers in well-paid industries such as medical, technology, engineering and design fields.
Thank you BNSF Railway for supporting White Salmon school children in their dreams for the future!
