In 2003 the Colfax Schools Foundation was started by the Colfax graduating class of 1952. Del was one of the original board members of the foundation and is a member of the class of 1952. Currently Del is the president of the foundation board and has been serving in that capacity for the past 14 years. Under Del's leadership the foundation has awarded over $268,000 in scholarships to 250 students. In just 17 years, Del has lead the foundation board to oversee over $350,000 in assets for future scholarships. Many future graduates from Colfax High School will have the opportunity to receive scholarships to aid them in completing their post high school degrees. Del Teade is a marvelous soul whose impact on our students will be felt for generations.
