Rowland Heights, CA (October 10, 2018) – Rowland Water District is proud to sponsor the Third Annual State of the Schools Breakfast presented by the Friends of Rowland Unified Schools (FORUS) Foundation on Friday, October 19th.  This highly anticipated event begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Rowland Heights Community Center.  It brings together residents, parents, educators, elected officials, business leaders, and key community stakeholders to hear about the success and future of Rowland Unified School District.

“Over the last several years, we have grown our organization to provide more direct support on the ground to both students and teachers alike,” says Szu Pei Lu-Yang, President, FORUS Foundation, and President of Rowland Water District’s Board of Directors. “With the support of committed sponsors like Rowland Water District, we can continue providing more classroom grants to our wonderfully dedicated teachers who are excited to share their innovative ideas for learning, and also encourage our well-deserving local students to pursue their higher education goals for the future.”

This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Julie Mitchell, Superintendent of Schools for Rowland Unified School District, with a presentation entitled ‘The Journey of Innovative Learning for All and the Community Connection for Student Success.’ Event proceeds benefit local schools through the FORUS Foundation’s annual distribution of student scholarships, classroom grants, and the implementation of groundbreaking learning programs.
