A Legacy of Education

A Legacy of Education

Virginia Finders found her calling to teach later in life. After raising a family of five, she went back to school and decided to take math, a subject she considered to be her worst. Much to her surprise, she found that she both enjoyed and excelled at math, and she went on to become a math instructor at PCC's Cascade Campus. Lee Finders, Virginia's husband, was an attorney who is well remembered for his volunteer legal work for seniors.

Through a bequest, the late Virginia and Lee Finders established two memorial scholarships in the names of their sons, Robert and Joseph, who died in their youth. The Robert L. Finders and Joseph B. Finders Scholarships will support PCC students who have graduated from Grant High School, where the Finders children attended school. Endowed with a gift at $600,000 these two scholarships comprise PCC Foundation's largest gift to date.
