The Janus scholarship program Scholarships for Success is dedicated to changing the future for our youth through education. This year seven youth received a total of $13,600 in scholarships, the highest amount ever given. They were recognized at last week’s awards ceremony and reception with many family, friends and special guests in attendance.
Robert Gootee, Chief Executive Officer of Moda Health, welcomed attendees to open the evening’s festivities. Gootee helped start the scholarship fund in 2001 and thanks to his continued commitment and generosity the fund has grown to more than $266,367. Dennis Morrow, Janus Executive Director, was able to share his thanks for Gootee’s ongoing support as well as recognize Joanne Senders whose personal donation of $75,000 will continue to open the door to education for youth.
