BENEFITING: DISCOVERY CENTER INC
Support students in learning about cross-cultural understanding and how to build an equitable world, and pay tribute to Ellie Goldberg. We are so grateful to have worked with Ellie for the past 10 years--5 as a participating principal and 5 as a staff member! The Discovery Center has reorganized, and Ellie's position was eliminated. We wish her the VERY BEST. Ellie, a former elementary school principal and dedicated educator, is a passionate advocate for young people. We would not be where we are as an organization if not for Ellie's dedication, insight, high standards and deep care.
We are happy to announce the Ellie Goldberg Scholarship Fund. It is fitting that we can support, in Ellie's name, the Residential Program student participation fee for students who might not otherwise have the chance to participate. We run a social justice camp/residential program for 5th and 6th grade children from the Hartford, CT region. They experience 3 to 5 days of diversity education, team building experiences, and fun in the outdoors. It is a wonderful experience, but not all families can pay the participation fee ($50 - $75). By giving to this fund, you will be helping those families with the most need to give their children this opportunity. Sincere thanks to Ellie for all she has done to build this program!!
