Recent Beneficiaries of the Volunteer Memorial Fund
The Education Committee and Board of Directors was delighted to be able to fund two students at South Valley Middle School to attend their annual Yosemite Institute program in March 2011. As part of their scholarship application, Kevin and Jamie both expressed their reasons for wanting to attend this program. The common factor was a desire to experience nature in a new way, and to learn more about the Sierras.
Jamie commented, "The coolest part of the trip was when we saw a coyote hunting in the meadow. It was an amazing feeling because people were close to it taking pictures and it didn't run away. It was as though it was posing."
Kevin described his experience, "The second day we got to play in the snow. It was so fun! Our leader showed me how to work in a group - that was special to me. But, the most exciting moment was when we were all in "spider cave" and everything was dark. That showed me the importance of working together with everybody."
To the supporters of the Volunteer Memorial Fund, and on behalf of these - and many other students like them - thank you!
