The Redmond Education Foundation and Home Federal Bank will host the fourth biennial Stars in the Sagebrush event at 6pm on April 12 at the River Run Event Center at Eagle Crest Resort.

These schools serve RSD students, adults and community members. RSD community schools include M.A. Lynch Elementary, Terrebonne Community School, Vern Patrick Elementary, Elton Gregory Middle School and Obsidian Middle School.
This year the following individuals and organizations will be honored for their service to education in Redmond:
Volunteer: Ed Harris, Mary Kimmel

The evening will feature food and drink, a celebration of the honorees, live music by Lindy Gravelle as well as a silent and live auction.
