Jerry Crabs, former District employee and Adult Basic and Literacy Education volunteer, passed away Friday, October 29, 2010. Jerry was a passionate advocate for At-Risk Youth in our Bozeman community. He was a dedicated teacher who volunteered countless hours to help GED students gain the math skills required for successful completion of the GED exam. In his memory, the Adult Basic and Literacy Education Program (ABLE) has sponsored the Jerry Crabs Memorial Scholarship Fund to assist low-income students pay the GED examination testing fee. Jerry is deeply missed by his family, our District “family,” and the community at large where he invested so much of his talent and time to helping students of all ages and abilities. It is our hope that this memorial fund will honor Jerry and his enduring vision and passion for quality education.
