Steve and Sandy Fund
Sandra H. Elion was a 33-year teacher here at WBS. Her dedication to our educational program was exceptional. She entered retirement in 2011.
Steve Hulslander was a 40-year teacher at WBS. His years of service to hundreds of students and families over that time is unprecedented. He retired in January of 2015.
The primary purpose of the Sandy Elion and Steve Hulslander Scholarship Fund is to ensure that West Branch School students may continue to attend West Branch School when unforeseen or sudden financial circumstances would not be sufficiently tempered by regular West Branch School financial assistance policies.The fund is expected to build when not needed in any year, and priorities in decision-making are to be made by the finance committee and teachers in consultation, if possible, with Sandy and Steve. Priorities should be directed toward longer-term students rather than new entrants.
