Jose Chacon Dare to Dream Fund in Honor of Mr. Doug Stephens

We are excited to announce a new opportunity to support the students at Ben Lomond High School! Each year, as many as 150 students at BLHS do not have the $30 registration fee required to enroll in concurrent enrollment classes, which enables high school students to receive college credit during high school. This not only saves money for the student in the future, but often provides the first impetus for a student to attain higher education opportunities. One such student was Class of 2011 Alum Jose Chacon.

As a high school junior, Jose was unable to cover the $30 registration fee for the Weber State University Concurrent Enrollment  Program for his American History class, but his teacher, Mr. Doug Stephens, quietly paid the fee so that Jose could earn the college credit. Mr. Stephens let Jose know that "we couldn't let a few dollars stop you." Since that time, Jose was the first in his family to graduate from high school, the first to go on to college, and has earned a degree in Chemistry from WSU. He made a promise to himself that one day, he would pay it forward. "I want to build a future where money is not an issue for children to dare to dream," he said.

Jose has made good on his promise, making the first donation to the newly established Jose Chacon Dare to Dream Fund in Honor of Mr. Doug Stephens, but we need your help to reach our goal of $5,000 so that we can help even more deserving BLHS students on their path to educational success!
