One of the most positive new developments in Rim Country has been the formation of Gila Foundation for Higher Education. Those who have helped to launch this tax-exempt foundation, including Dr. Barbara Ganz (her title at Gila County Community College), Chairman Pat Willis and the sixteen other members of the Foundation board deserve our thanks and our support.
Through the work of the Foundation, they seek to build an endowment for our college to support financial aid and scholarship programs for worthy students and to fund a variety of library, learning assistance and telecommunications resources to enhance the college education experience.
The Mogollon Health Alliance has a special interest in the priority that Dr. Ganz is giving to secure a nursing curriculum for the Gila Community College District, Rim Country Campus, to help meet a critical local need. We see the Gila Foundation for Higher Education as being very supportive of that effort, as well.
We are very hopeful that local businesses and people in and around Payson will add their support to this worthy cause.
