2018 Scholarship Night

When the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation started 25 years ago, just two students received a scholarship – one boy and one girl were each awarded $500.  A lot has changed during the quarter of century.  This past may, 89 graduating seniors were awarded scholarships that will help them pursue their goals and dreams after high school.

“This is a celebration of the 89 seniors, but also of the people who elected to invest their resources in the development of our future young leaders,”  PVEF President Dave Borcherding said.  “As with any investment, these generous donors are expecting a return on that investment. Your return to them is dedicating yourself to lifelong learning and using that learning to find the opportunities for which you are destined to provide the solutions.”

During the ceremony, families honored their loved ones, businesses thanked the community and all sent the message that PV supports its students now and will into the future.

“You know we’re proud of you,” Superintendent Dr. Jim Spelhaug said. “We also have expectations for you.  One of the reasons we award these scholarships is to remind you that it isn’t on your own that you’ve gotten to where you are.  Faculty, family and the community have stood beside you.  Our expectation is that you will go out into the world and stand beside someone else who needs it.”

Pleasant Valley Community School District believes in the best educational experience “not for some kids, but for all kids,” and the Foundation’s scholarship program represents that belief.  Scholarship recipients represent the entire 2017 class.  While some scholarships are awarded to top level students, scholarships are also awarded for character and work ethic.  Most awardees are students with a drive to succeed with a wide range interests from medicine to music to mechanics.

Thank you to all donors, families, and businesses who believe in the mission of the PVEF and who continually support the students of PVCSD.  Your generosity is never forgotten!
