GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX)–Administrators for Western Colorado Community Foundation and District 51 came together today at Central High School in Grand Junction, where D-51 received a check to help with high school extra-curricular activities.

The check–worth $100,000–is from the new “Pat and Tillie Bishop Legacy Fund” and will be divided among the district’s five high schools. This is the first donation from the legacy fund, and the Western Colorado Community Foundation expects to donate to D-51 annually, but the amount donated may change from year-to-year.

D-51 Superintendent Brian Hill said, “I want to say how honored we are to receive this generous donation from Pat and Tillie Bishop in support of extracurricular activities in our D-51 high schools.”
