Our County Fair in June was an incredible opportunity for our community to come together, enjoy great entertainment, learn about the various organizations that call El Dorado County home and honor more than 1,000 well-deserved students for their hard work and achievements through the Golden Star Student Program. Exceptional students were identified by their schools for the program, given free admission to the fair and recognized formally with certificates and gift bags at a booth hosted by the El Dorado County Office of Education.
This program would not have been possible without the strong partnership we maintain with groups that share our passion to invest in our young community members. The El Dorado County Library contributed an interactive history kiosk to enhance the booth for visitors. El Dorado County’s Fair Board and Fair Manager Jody Gray were instrumental in showcasing these students. The school districts of El Dorado County provide crucial leadership for educational success, and educators and Superintendents joined EDCOE employees at the booth to provide assistance and greet the Golden Star Students.
We also greatly appreciate program sponsors DST Output, Hangtown Active 20-30 Club #43, Carter-Kelly, Inc., El Dorado Community Foundation, Full Life Fellowship, Girard Edwards & Hance, Attorneys at Law, El Dorado Savings Bank, Dawson’s Floor Fashions, Valley Pizza, Inc., Roundtable Pizza and Ski Air.
EDCOE collaborates with our school districts and community partners to maximize resources and provide progressive and engaging learning experiences to the students of El Dorado County. However, it is also crucial that we continually honor and empower our children to succeed in the future — because they are our future.
