Lynn and Lenny Vigneault, Pam and Doug Willett, Claire Ganter Thank You BEF Donors The Biddeford Education Foundation appreciates the individual and business donors who advance its mission. Last Fall, it held its first inaugural Pillars of Pride event to honor two generous community partners and longtime contributors to learning, Roland Eon and Jim Godbout. The dinner and silent auction raised $15,195 for the Foun- dation which provides resources outside the normal school budget to enhance programs, encourage academic exc ellence, and maximize opportunities for students K-12. “Superintendent Jeremy Ray stated, “we are grateful to the Biddeford Education Foundation’s Board and those who have supported aca- demics throughout our schools. Funding continues to be a challenge for public schools and this Foundation opens doors for Biddeford youth to engage in opportunities that otherwise would not be available to them.” Gifts of $25,000 to $49,999 Samuel L.
