Walker-Grant starts scholarship fund for teacher

In honor of eighth-grade science teacher Mark Bareford, Walker-Grant Middle School has established a scholarship fund in his name. Bareford passed away over the summer.

The scholarship fund will provide opportunities for WGMS students to participate in summer enrichment activities, according to the school’s website.

The school will hold a dinner on Nov. 10 (Veteran’s Day) to fundraise for the scholarship. The date is special because Bareford served in the U.S. Navy.

Tickets for the event are $5 and include a dinner of baked potato and chili as well as entertainment.

For more information, contact the school.
