Terri worked as a Technology Aide for the District 90 school district for ten years, where all four of her children attended.  She was completely self-taught when it came to learning to use Mac Computers.  From the start, Terri “tirelessly inspired River Forest students, teachers, and community to embrace the endless possibilties of technology.”

In order to honor Terri’s passion to promote technology and make it accessible for everyone, Terri’s family has created the Terri Race Educational Technology Fund.

Terri’s family is in the process of ensuring that the fund is awarded to the best possible recipients.  Thus far, we have donated to the following organizations:

1. Hephzibah Home, in Oak Park, IL, a group home that helps children thrive and families flourish.

2. Irving Elementary School, where Terri attended 5-8 grade;

3. Golder College Prep, where Terri's daughter, Mariel, currently teaches high school Spanish.

4. Oak Park River Forest High School Scholarship Foundation, where Terri, her siblings and her children attended high school, and

5. Chicago Youth Centers Fellowship House, serving students of all ages in after school and summer programming.

6. Girls Who Code, which provide teen girls with computer skills to prepare them for the future!
