Members of 100 Strong Bandon recently donated $5,000 to the Bandon Educational Foundation – Harbor Lights Middle School Electives. HLMS Grade 7 and 8 students, instructors and Principal Becky Armistead have created a slate of engaging new electives for the 2022-2023 school year.
At the top of the list were cabinetmaking and family and consumer sciences. (think modern home ec.) While many members at the May meeting were surprised that the carpentry workshop is not currently taught, Armistead was happy to note that the carpentry workshop is covered and will be made available through a partnership with Bandon High School Career and Technical Education.
