In 2014, an Endowment Fund was created by a group of enthusiastic donors who wanted to bless the school and honor one of their friends, Mr. Frank Trane. Mr. Trane was personally responsible for erecting the cross on the hill in Palm Desert that is a community landmark for all to see. Consequently, this year, $3,000 scholarships were awarded to five students who best exemplify the personal qualities of Mr. Trane, as determined by the Selection Committee. All K-8 students are eligible to apply in the Spring of each year, and interviews are conducted with each finalist before the selection is made and announced by the end of the school year. For more information or to donate, please contact the Development Office.
