2016 Endowment Fund Grant Recipients

The Ashe County Board of Education Endowment Fund encourages new and innovative approaches to student learning that are not supported through the traditional funding of public education.
The primary objectives and purposes for which this organization is organized and formed are as follows:
To provide funding by grants that will enrich student learning and educational opportunities over and above the resources provided by local, state and federal funding for schools
To solicit and receive (when deemed appropriate by the board of directors) contributions of money, land, stocks, bonds, personal property, and other items of value from individuals, corporations, foundations, businesses, and other organizations to be held and invested by the NC Community Foundation and used for the objectives and purposes of this organization.
Our largest fundraiser is the Endowment Fund Golf Tournament.  The 15th annual tournament will be held July 13, 2016 at Jefferson Landing Golf Club.

CTE Student of the Month

I have had the distinct pleasure of having Jesse W. as a student in my carpentry 1-2-3 classes and on my list of outstanding students at Ashe County High School. Jesse has been more than the ideal student. In order to achieve the highest grades and my deepest respect, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership and maintained a clear sense of purpose.
Since his classmates, my fellow teachers, and I will always hold him in the highest esteem, I sincerely recommend Jesse Weaver for the Ashe County High School Career and Technical Education student of the month.
