GARY HAMELS

ENDOWMENT FUND

Gary Hamels worked in public education as a district administrator for over 35 years, believing that all students should receive an equal education. With a love of golf, especially with his grandsons, and his daily walks, Gary’s goal was for all students to find a balance between academics and sporting activities.

Thank you for supporting our Gary Hamels Endowment program. Your donation will go towards the educational needs at local middle schools and high schools, as well as supporting cancer research trials.

WE BELIEVE THAT THROUGH EDUCATION ANY CHILD, REGARDLESS OF CIRCUMSTANCES, CAN ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS.
