Mike Elston of The Dalles High School Class of 1965 stopped by the studios to tell us about a fundraising effort the class had made in order to provide tablets to a match class so they could download textbooks rather than spending all the money for expensive textbooks that would be completely outmoded in a few years. They raised $4,000 in just a few months and then an anonymous giver donated a matching amount, which allowed them to equip another class.
Now the DHS class of 1965 is challenging all other former classes of both The Dalles and Wahtonka to match or beat their gift.
And they’re looking to form an alumni organization. Check out the interview below.
