Submitted By Allison Bormel
From the floor of the House of Representatives, on March 18, U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (CA-15) recognized the Hayward Education Foundation for its 30th anniversary. The Hayward Education Foundation grants funds to Hayward teachers with innovative ideas to inspire student learning.
Congressman Swalwell stated:
"I want to congratulate the Hayward Education Foundation, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. This organization was founded by a Hayward school teacher, Elaine Adams in 1983. This nonprofit, grants money to Hayward school teachers who have creative ideas to inspire and enrich their students' educational experience."
"In 2012, grants were given to the Butterfly Garden at Longwood Elementary, a solar cell car at Bret Harte Middle School, and a college motivation program at Hayward High School. In its 30-year history the foundation has given out nearly one million dollars. I want to acknowledge the Board of Directors: Dianne McDermott, Pastor Chuck Horner, Rick Bartholomew, Peter Bufete, Paul and Penny Hodges, Guy Sandoval, Bruce Roberts, Maria Servin, Andrea Peixoto, Don Evans, and Bill Liu."
"Hayward's motto is 'The Heart of the Bay,' but it is the heart and mind and forward thinking of these individuals that really enriches Hayward and makes it such a special place to live. So I want to congratulate them on their 30th anniversary and wish them well in the next 30 years."
