For a brief time, Debbie was the office manager of the Mission Community Foundation but her career path put her at the Mission School district for almost 30 years where she was admired for her dedication, organization and unwavering professionalism.
In line with her passion for education was her passion for animal welfare; she loved horses, particularly the Arabian breed.
Her husband, Rick, and family wanted to reflect her passion for animals in a permanent way so they created the Debbie Mattson Memorial Fund as a bursary available to any student wishing to further their studies in Animal Welfare / Veterinary Sciences.
Since its inception in 2013 this fund has helped 10 students with at total of $7500.00.
If you would like to assist a student in furthering their studies in the animal welfare/veterinary sciences fields, donate today!
