The foundation presented a check of more than $20,000 dollars to the city council Thursday afternoon. The money was gathered through fundraisers and will allow kids who can’t afford programs to take part.
“They really touch a lot of lives throughout our city, and they do a lot of good work including after school kinds of things,” Mayor Gary Wheeler says, “it’s really a wonderful program.”
To apply for a scholarship you can stop by the Santo Center. You must be a resident of Medford, and must apply for a specific program before being eligible for a scholarship.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford’s water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters.
When Kristin is not sharing the news, she’s traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She’s also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she’d be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
