Kudos & Kindness: Thanks for your support of TRiO

TRiO Educational Talent Search would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their support during the month of October:

Thank you Bill Ellis with McFarlane Mortuary, Detective Sonny Piazza with El Dorado County Sherriff’s Office and Jon Tekulve, vector technician with El Dorado County Vector Control. We appreciate that you took time out of your day to come speak to TRiO ETS middle school students about your very interesting careers. They were fascinated and it was a great opportunity for them.

TRiO ETS would also like to thank Chevy’s Fresh Mex, their friendly staff and the supportive community members who attended our Taco Night fundraiser. Thank you Blue Dog Pizza and Tahoe Bowl for your donations toward our raffle. It was a very successful fundraising event. Money raised will go towards field trips, supplies and scholarships for TRiO ETS students at both South Tahoe Middle School and South Tahoe High School.
