Jeffco Student Art Shows
Jeffco Schools Foundation, adopted the District Arts upon budget cuts, and with the help of the Betty and Joe Wetherbee Endowment for the Arts and additional supporters, underwrites four Student Art Shows each year.
The shows help nearly 3,000 students each year learn that the Jeffco community values their creativity, their willingness to work hard, and their talents. In addition, an important by-product includes art teachers' receipt of professional development and support while planning the Art Shows with their colleagues.
Art Show Benefactor Spotlight
Betty Wetherbee made a planned gift to the Foundation in 2009 in memory of her late husband, Joe. Joe was a former Wheat Ridge High School teacher who believed in the power of education, and Betty wanted to make sure that his vision lived forever.
Betty made gifts of an IRA and life insurance to endow the Betty and Joe Wetherbee Art and Music Endowment Fund, which provides partial annual support for the Jeffco Schools Foundation student art shows. Join Betty in supporting the visual arts in Jeffco Public Schools by making a donation to the Jeffco Schools Foundation Art Shows Fund or Endowment at ColoradoGives.org.
