Jennifer Shirkey of Harrisonburg Rotary Club and Jerry Scripture of SVEE, Inc.

The Harrisonburg Rotary Club has made a significant donation to Shenandoah Valley Economic Education, Inc., from its 2013 charity golf tournament. SVEE was one of five local nonprofit organizations to receive allocations from the tournament proceeds. Jennifer Shirkey, outgoing Club president, made the $10,000 presentation on June 24. “Our children need to learn about market economics and its importance to prosperity just as they need to learn any other civics lesson,” said SVEE Board chair Jerry Scripture. “We, in the Valley, are blessed to have the support of educators and the business community to support that mission through Shenandoah Valley Economic Education, Inc. Rotary’s continued support of that mission is terrific.”
