Diane Olds was a retired K-6 Math Coordinator
and 30 year teacher with the Washoe County School District, Reno, Nevada, when she passed away after a short illness on July 18, 2008. Diane’s commitment to the education of all children, and most especially to poor and underprivileged children, was lifelong and profound.
To honor Diane’s lifelong dedication to the students who most needed her commitment, the Diane Olds Memorial Scholarship was established to honor Diane’s passion for the education of women. Eligible applicants are female graduating seniors from Reed High School, Sparks High School, or Proctor Hug High School in Reno, Nevada OR those that are re-entry students who graduated from one of these schools. Applicants must be interested in the field of education as a career.
