Do you remember a special teacher that made a difference in your life or maybe a coach that had a tremendous influence on you? Have your children had an exceptional teacher that helped them in some special way? Today through November 29th, there is an opportunity for you to give back by Honoring An Educator, sponsored by the Rockingham Educational Foundation, Inc. (REFI).
REFI has been operating over twenty years supporting educators and educational excellence in Rockingham County Public Schools. The volunteers of the REFI board, a group of caring parents and business folks, work very hard to raise funds and secure donations in support of our mission. REFI has given over $100,000 in each of the past few years in educational grants to teachers and in student scholarships, but more is needed to support our schools in these budget-challenged times.
You can help by recognizing an educator, past or present, during the REFI Honor an Educator event by making a donation to thank and honor that teacher or coach who made a difference to you or your children, while investing in the education of Rockingham County students today.
Your tax-deductible donation, no matter how large or small, can be made online at http://refi.rockingham.k12.va.us/ OR by sending a check to REFI, 100 Mt. Clinton Pike, Harrisonburg, VA 22802. If you have any questions about how REFI supports our county schools, go to our web page, speak with a board member, or call Katie LaPira, REFIís Executive Director at 540-564-3218.
