“My way is to help as many as I possibly can
and if that helps future generations as well, that’s even better.”
- Sonya Beard -
Sonya Beard was a strong supporter of community. She gave significant contributions to the Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation and the Mount Vernon Library Foundation. Her generous donation of $500,000 (held by the Skagit Community Foundation) was the first step in making the new library a reality. Sadly, Sonya passed away in 2010, but the Mount Vernon Library Foundation was set up to make sure her Legacy will live on in Skagit County.
