Scholarship Drive Surpasses $1,600

A supporter of education in the Elgin community for many years, students again this year will benefit from the generosity of the late Gayla Fredrickson.

The former superintendent of Elgin Public Schools, who passed away in July 2009, a large donation has been made to the Elgin Area Community Foundation’s annual scholarship drive in her memory.

Additional donations last week were received from Gene and Mary Jane Boes, Rita Wagner, Tony & Nicole Levander, Mike & Judy Kerkman, and from Jim Fredrickson.

The scholarship fund drive now stands at $1,605.
