Dana Hyde - Vernonia School District #47J

Scholarship and School-To-Work Coordination

After two devastating floods in 2007 that left the Vernonia School District in a state of disarray, Hyde worked to rebuild the District's Career Center from nothing.  In addition, Hyde identified and organized local and external funding sources for the local scholarship spplication process, and arranged for speakers from colleges and scholarship donors to meet with student candidates and their parents, as well as career-related field trips.  Hyde also provided daily guidance and supervision of high school students utilizing the school's library/career center to work on college, scholarship and FAFSA applications, as well as the Oregon eApp.
