Dear CDHEA Members,

In the 5 years since the passing of Pam Hughes, CDHEA members have stepped up to honor the memory of one of our most inspiring members by generating scholarship funds to pass on to our most inspiring students.

Your schools donated amazing items, you generously purchased raffle tickets, we had fun, and every penny of those funds went out to the students you nominated.


Covid-19 squashed our fundraising efforts for a year, and now a new California tax law prohibits our type of fundraising efforts. We would love for the Pam Hughes Award to remain a part of what we do – and we clearly cannot do this without you!


For those who have already made scholarship donations via CE Zoom registration – thank you!!!


We hope you will join us in making a scholarship donation at our annual meeting this year. Remember: EVERY PENNY OF YOUR DONATIONS TO THE PAM HUGHES AWARD GO RIGHT BACK TO YOUR STUDENTS.


The CDHEA Board looks forward to reconnecting with you in person.


 The CDHEA Executive Board Members
