HOLTVILLE — Business leaders, educators and community members here met Tuesday to discuss establishing an educational foundation for the Holtville Unified School District.
Carlos Vega, Holtville schools superintendent, said about 20 people showed up for the meeting.
"They are gung-ho for starting this," Vega said.
Local attorney Brooks Anderholt was asked to be the facilitator of the foundation and accepted that assignment.
"It's going forward," said Vega.
Vega said he anticipates the foundation being a funnel for donations and a way to raise funds for extracurricular activities or extra things for classes.
The foundation will be run by a board of directors made up of community members. Members of the board have not yet been chosen.
