Bob Yancey, Billie Yancey Memorial Scholarship, speaking at the PET Scholarship Celebration.

With the support of individuals, corporate and community organizations, the foundation has awarded thousands of dollars over the years in grants and scholarships to assist students, teachers and programs not already funded by local, state and federal dollars.

PET’s mission is to generate, monitor and dispense funds; to provide financial support to programs for enrichment; and to encourage, recognize and reward excellence in the students and staff of the Douglas County School System. Funds come from a variety of sources including personal and business donations, honorariums and memorial gifts, endowments, grants, and fund raising events.
