Garfield Re-2 School District is thankful for recent donations
The Garfield School District No. Re-2 would like to thank Matt Briney, Piceance Operations Superintendent and ExxonMobile for their generous donation of $10,000 to support the math and science programs in the district. This is the second year that ExxonMobile has provided financial support for the math and science programs within Garfield Re-2 School District.
Additionally, Garfield Re-2 would like to thank the Clough Foundation for their generous donation of $42,000 to support the purchase of new band uniforms at Rifle High School. The Clough Foundation supports Garfield Re-2 through a number of venues including multiple scholarships for our Rifle High and Coal Ridge High School students.
“We are very grateful for the support of organizations such as Exxon Mobile and the Clough Foundation. Their generous gifts help our district continue to provide quality programs and services to the students of Garfield Re-2,” said Superintendent Susan Birdsey.
