Jill Bailey Chenet Scholarship Fund
This Fund was named in memory of our beloved teacher and friend, Jill Bailey Chenet, who passed away in 2012.
Jill dedicated her career to her students, bringing them to their fullest potential with joy and a sense of wonder that was palpable in her classroom daily.
Her commitment and her gifts as a teacher reflected a profound understanding of the children she loved. In addition to her role as a teacher, Jill mentored other educators and worked individually with children who were struggling with reading after school. Jill taught her students, and everyone who knew her, to love, laugh and celebrate life.
We are grateful to the many friends and family who contribute to the Jill Bailey Chenet Scholarship Fund each year through gifts and support of Jill Bailey Chenet's RiverWalk. The fund total as of August 31, 2021 was $385,427.
The Jill Bailey Chenet Scholarship Fund, supports “Tootie Time” tutoring at The River School, a program to help deserving children succeed in school and become life-long readers. You can make a contribution to the Jill Bailey Chenet Scholarship Fund anytime during the year.
