District Celebrates $49,000 Investment from the Masons of CA

taftTo kick off the organization’s annual Public Schools Month, the Masons of California recently presented a check for $49,000 to Superintendent Bill Kowba to be applied towards scholarships for high school students. The Investment in Success Scholarship Program offers a unique opportunity for students who may not appear to be college-bound or may not be recognized for academic success, but who possess the desire and determination to overcome personal obstacles to achieve their goals.

The students and staff at Taft Middle School rolled out the red carpet for their special guests on April 1 with a celebration and reception to mark the district’s continued partnership with the Masons. Several Masonic lodges throughout the area already partner with our schools, offering human, financial and other valuable resources to support student success. The district thanks the Masons of California for their continued support of public education. For more information, contact Taft Principal (and Mason) Mike George at
