Kalapuya Receives $2,550 from NCCU Project Community Grants

This is the kind of surprise teachers and students can get behind.

Kalapuya High School received two grants from Northwest Community Credit Union’s Project Community.

Naz Zydycryn was surprised with a giant check for $1,100. His Hot Sauce Club (students make hot sauce from peppers grown at the Bethel Farm) is looking to help students sell their sauce as real business start-ups.

Rich Dambrov received $1,450 to purchase new bee keeping suits, including gear for young students to wear during their field trips to the honey bee hives at the Farm.

Out of 370 submissions for Project Community grants, there are just 68 winners, and Kalapuya’s are the only ones awarded in Bethel.

Northwest Community Credit Union staff also volunteer annually to conduct mock interviews for graduating seniors, providing them valuable feedback and coaching as they move from high school onto their professional careers paths.
