Ed Foundation head steps down

The Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools Executive Director Heather Vihstadt is leaving the organization after four years to take a position with the High Desert Museum.

The Foundation raises money for the school district, contributing athletic fee scholarships and providing teachers extra resources through grants.

As the organization searches for a new executive director, board President Michele Emery and the organization’s executive team will oversee the Foundation. The organization hopes to have a new leader in place by the end of the summer.
