Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty agents donate to education

Submitted to the Tribune

Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty agents ramp up their philanthropic efforts in Lake Tahoe this holiday season with donations to Sierra Nevada College of Incline Village and Mt. Tallac Continuation School of South Lake Tahoe.

Incline Village agent, Terry Barbery, established the Terry Barbery Scholarship Fund for deserving Sierra Nevada College students. The first disbursement of the scholarship is slated to be awarded in January of 2014. The $1000 dollar scholarship will be applied to the student’s tuition and financial needs for the semester.

Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty South Lake Tahoe agent, Thane McCall, made his contribution to education in Lake Tahoe this season with $50 dollar gift certificates to each of the 56 students at Mt. Tallac Continuation School. McCall also paid the students a personal visit at the high school and provides the students a party with homemade food. This is the second year of McCall’s donation to students of the school.

Mt. Tallac Continuation School serves students with various circumstances that require more flexibility than available at conventional high schools. Mt Tallac Continuation School focuses on community building while helping students complete the credits needed in order to obtain a high school diploma.
