YPS Foundation cancels banquet; will still award grants

COVID-19 does the trick again


Yukon Public Schools’ Foundation for Excellence has canceled a banquet due to a recent rise in COVID-19 cases.

The recognition banquet – honoring the YPS Foundation’s 2021-22 grant recipients and recognizing donors and contributions – had been set Thursday, Feb. 3 inside the Palace Event Center at 2310 N Banner Road. The theme was “Peace Love & Grants.”

YPS Foundation trustees will announce this year’s grant winners during upcoming presentations at Yukon school sites.

Since 1991, the Foundation has awarded grants to Yukon educators for innovative school projects.
