The Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows presented a check in the amount of $10,000 on Monday morning to Half Moon Bay High School Principal John Nazar. The funds raised by the community organization will support industrial arts at the high school and at Cunha Intermediate School and contribute to the scholarship fund at the high school. The gift also includes $1,000 for the robotics club at the high school.

The Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows Youth Services Committee is based upon the conviction that an educated society is essential to a healthy democracy. The Half Moon Bay YSC, which has been in operation for over a decade, provides access to post-secondary education to members of our community who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.

The Odd Fellows see higher education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, communities, and nations. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational attainment and assures positive educational outcomes are accessible to all regardless of economic circumstance. In our community, doors will not be closed to those who lack financial resources, and post-secondary education will be available to all with the potential to succeed.
