Port Angeles Education Foundation (PAEF) Recognizes PAHS Academic studentsPort Angeles Education Foundation (PAEF) sponsored an Academic Awards Luncheon in the lobby of the Port Angeles High School auditorium on Friday, November 3 for Port Angeles High School students who have earned a 3.5 or better GPA for the last three years.  Parents and other family members were invited to join the luncheon.  PAEF Board President Bill Kindler called each student to the podium to talk briefly about their accomplishments.  Each student was presented with an awards certificate.  Students receiving recognition were Freja Jarvegren-Uecker, Senator Atwater, Lauren Rankin, Owen Nevaril, Aidan Higbee,  Erin Edwards and Cassandra Middlestead.  Edwards and Middlestead were unable to attend the ceremony as they were participating in an away swim team competition.
PAEF Board President Kindler addressed the students and their families, saying, “We want you to know that we support everything that you do. The mission of PAEF is to foster support for students and programs by promoting creativity, innovation, and excellence in partnership with Port Angeles Public Schools.”
The Port Angeles Education Foundation (PAEF) was formed in 1991 by community leaders to meet growing challenges to public education not met through traditional sources of funding.  Three ways PAEF provides support are through the school/teacher grant program, scholarships for graduating seniors of Port Angeles and Lincoln High Schools, and student needs programs.  For more information about PAEF, see their website at www.portangeleseducationfoundation.org
