Betty and R.E. 'Poly' Schedeen and Neighborhood Saints Scholarship

Betty Schedeen was a community member who fought to have a community college established in our area and is considered to be the “mother” of Mt. Hood Community College. She and other local supporters founded a group called the Neighborhood Saints, and opened a thrift store to raise money for MHCC scholarships. Betty believed strongly in the value of education and training. This scholarship honors her along with all of the other Neighborhood Saints.
