Invest in our community

Supporting the upcoming bond for Wenatchee’s public schools is a direct investment in our community and its future. This investment not only improves the quality of our schools, teachers and students, but also has far-reaching ancillary benefits throughout the community. Good schools enhance property values, attract employers and employees, and help retain our future leaders. All community members, regardless if they have children in public schools, will benefit from this investment. And if the carrot approach is not compelling, consider the stick: If we do not invest in maintaining our schools they will deteriorate and this deterioration will have a negative impact on our valley’s economic health and character.
