As a former school district employee, I became interested in the 622 Education Foundation when it was developed in 1996. Their goal is to make educational opportunities available for all students in the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale public schools. The Foundation has awarded more than $100,000 in grants to staff members who submitted grants to provide innovative opportunities for students. They provide $22,000 per year to schools in the district for an Angel Fund. This is a fund through which principals can assist students with food, clothing, medical care, supplies, etc., so that those students do not miss educational opportunities because of their families' financial situations. Finally, the 622 Education Foundation recognizes excellent students who graduate in the top 10% of their class at a special dinner where they also recognize a selected teacher and parents, and they receive a scholarship. I will continue to support the 622 Education Foundation's excellent work with my time, talents and financial contributions. In this difficult economic time, we need to do as much as possible to give students and staff our support. Carole Anderson
