Willits…Nine fifth grade students, representing Willits and Laytonville received the Mendocino College Foundation’s Adopt a Fifth-Grader Award. This annual program is designed to motivate students early to start thinking about graduating from high school and to attend college.
At each adopted school’s awards ceremony, a Foundation representative and program donors presented recipients with a $25 check and a certificate stating that a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded when the student obtains a high school diploma and enrolls at Mendocino College. If the student earns a high. school diploma but does not enroll at Mendocino College, he or she will receive a $500 award.
This program is possible due to the generous support of our 2019 donors. Willits Rotary Club, Jim & Marilyn Harden, Tom & Angie Herman, Gary Ross, Robin Goldner and Mark Komer, Derivi Castellanos Architects, Eric & Alison Glassey and special thanks to our anonymous donors.
