Last season was the inaugural season of the Cascade Employee Scholar Fund. For those who aren’t familiar, this program was designed to award high school aged employees with additional funds on top of their regular wages to assist with the costs of postsecondary education. Students who complete their senior year of employment with Cascade are eligible for a $1 donation for every hour worked through consecutive seasons during their high school career. That means if you start working here as a freshman and continue working here until your senior year, you would be eligible for a $1 donation for every hour worked for the last 4 years.
Last season, 7 employees who participated in the program completed their commitments to both Cascade and their education and will be receiving their funds in the coming days! We’d like to thank and congratulate Andrew, Aydan, Caleb, Charlene, Olivia, Riley, and Sam for their hard work both at Cascade and in the classroom! Checks were mailed out today, so you’ll be seeing them shortly!
We’d love to see the number of participants grow this season! If you or someone you know is interested, we’ll be looking to hire on some more exceptional employee scholars in just a few short weeks. More info regarding this program is available on the Employment page of our website.
