It’s a gift that has teachers throughout Solano County singing and playing a happy tune these days.
For the past four years, Vacaville residents Donald and Rose Marie Wong have given musical grants through a permanently endowed fund at the Solano Community Foundation to various teachers in the area.
It’s filled a void as school districts lost funding, pushing the arts by the wayside. This year, 12 music teachers were the recipients of grants totaling $20,800, some even receiving more than their grant application requested.
