The Weatherford Education Foundation - Supporting Schools and Students

A graduate of the University of North Texas, Jerry Durant has
served as the owner of a new and used car dealership enterprise since
1970. A committed community leader, Jerry Durant also cofounded the
Weatherford Education Foundation.
Serving the Weatherford, Texas, Independent School District, the nonprofit
foundation is dedicated to helping the district’s students and faculty through
private funding and grants. Whether the foundation is giving school supplies
to more than 1,000 needy students a year or helping teachers continue their
education through scholarships, it works to improve the district’s overall
educational experience. Over the foundation’s 15-year history it has
raised nearly $1 million for students, faculty, and school events.
In addition to events like the golf tournament, youth football camp, and a
teacher of the year luncheon, the Weatherford Education Foundation
sponsors its centerpiece event, the annual Gold Star Gala. With a silent
and live auction and dancing, the 2014 Gold Star Gala also featured a
meet and greet with former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson.
Silent auction items included sporting event tickets, handmade
birdhouses, and a number of electronic devices.
