Coach Bobby Kelo Memorial Scholarship Fund

Seymour High School graduate, Bobby Kelo, went on to enjoy a 32-year career as a math teacher & coach at his alma mater. After his death, his mother established a scholarship fund in his memory to benefit Seymour students. Upon her passing this year, she invited friends and family to contribute to the Fund in lieu of flowers.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

In early September 2020, the Valley Community Foundation Board began a journey to focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). A meaningful dialogue ensued around what it means to feel like you belong in the Valley and what can get in the way of that. The retreat was facilitated by Kenya Rutland, Principal and Chief Enthusiasm Officer with KJR Consulting.
