Bake sale raises $1,200 for Jamaica cohorts

The Friends of M.Ed. Jamaica extends its thanks to the university community for the tremendous support of the bake sale and silent auction fundraising event held on Nov. 21 on the Winona Campus.

The group raised over $1,200 for a scholarship fund for students in the Jamaica cohorts of the M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning program, offered in Williamsfield, Jamaica in collaboration with the Catholic College of Mandeville (CCM).

For the past three years this group of employees has raised a donation, first to assist with outfitting a new classroom at CCM used by the M.Ed. program, $1,500 for student scholarships for this current academic year, and with the goal of $1,500 from this year’s events to be given for scholarships for the next academic year. If you are interested in joining the group or making a donation, please contact Tracy Lehnertz or Jana Korder.
