More than 600 people attended The Education Foundation of Eagle County’s (E(f)ec) Project Funway event, held in February at Dobson Arena, which raised $100,000. The funding allows E(f)ec programs to ensure low student-teacher ratios, facilitate important new STEM curriculum and retain top-quality teachers to continue and positively impact the youth of the valley.
