Wes MathewsThe Trail Blazers Foundation and Wells Fargo are "Taking it to the Court for Education" to offer $75,000 in grants for schools across Oregon and SW Washington. The deadline to apply on behalf of your school was late 2014. Using Harney ESD's grant writing services, Eric Nichols, Harney ESD School Improvement Director, applied on behalf of Hines Middle School and Harney County Kids Club to extend the Oregon Community Foundation grant, which has funded the extremely successful Friday Academy for HMS students. Hines Middle School and Kids Club took home over $7500 from Wells Fargo and the Trailblazers to continue Friday Academy.
