The Madison Park Retired Educators Awards Fund
Helping Madison Park Graduating Seniors Achieve Their Career Goals
Our Madison Park Retired Educators Awards Fund (MPREAF) is now launching its fourth annual donation campaign! The fund gives awards to deserving graduating seniors to help them continue in their vocational/career area with further education or training in their field or trade. The MPREAF is a response to the rising cost of continuing education and the tools and technology required by students entering the workforce and training programs. This hardship is particularly felt by students of color and those from low-income backgrounds.
The financial resources currently available to Madison Park students are few. The MPREAF was created to meet this challenge by providing more awards to students to help them on the road to becoming skilled and professional workers. Thanks to your support, the fund has been able to distribute continuing education awards totaling $2000 for each of the past three years. Last year the fund gave five “tools of the trade” awards to students entering apprenticeships and further training in their vocational/technical area.
Raising additional funds this year will increase the number of awards given to outstanding students to continue in their vocational fields after graduation. To accomplish this crucial goal, your support is greatly appreciated!
