On February 11, 2016, the Education Foundation presented $30,000, dedicated to the Music Matters campaign, to the Duarte Unified School District. Once again, a sincere and heartfelt thank you to all that donated their time, money, and resources to continuing support to our students.
In lieu of flowers, the Ferguson and Finlay families are asking for donations to the Ferguson Education Fund, a scholarship fund to aide college-bound Duarte High students, which Finlay said the Fergusons created 15 years ago. To donate, make checks payable to the Duarte Education Foundation and mail to P.O. Box 497, Duarte, CA 91009-0497.
The Duarte Education Foundation mourns the loss of Ed Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson was dedicated to the youth in Duarte and our Duarte schools. He re-established the Duarte Education Foundation and created the Ferguson Education Fund, a fund that provides scholarships to college-bound Duarte High School students. Mr. Ferguson served two terms on the Duarte Unified School Board from 1995 to 2003. He was a generous man who believed in community and giving back. Our hearts are saddened by his passing; it is our desire that his memory will live on through the works of the Duarte Education Foundation. To learn more about Ed Ferguson please click here.
