boating safety and to encouraging our nation’s youth to
pursue the enjoyment of boating and careers in the boat-
ing industry. We are particularly touched that Jerry and
Kathy will continue to serve the boating community by
helping students learn to design boats and yachts that
will be joyfully used for generations to come.”
“Westlawn is extremely grateful to the Kathy and Jerry
Wood Foundation,” noted Westlawn director Dave Gerr.
“The scholarships and grants the Wood Foundation are
making possible will be a tremendous help to our stu-
dents, and it’s even more satisfying to know that we’ll be
continuing the tradition that Kathy and Jerry Wood estab-
lished both assisting in education and in supporting boat-
ing.”
“ABYC’s president, Skip Burdon, was instrumental in
making the connections that resulted in this invaluable
support,” continued Gerr. “It’s a perfect example of how
important it is to be part of ABYC, and of the deep com-
mitment that ABYC has to boating education and stan-
dards.”
