Katey’s Kids Scholarship Fund

About Katey’s Kids

In 2010, the Sebastian family of the Sebastian Corporation established Katey’s Kids. The Sebastian Corporation is one of the Central Valley’s premier providers of quality communication and information technology. This organization was founded to honor the life and legacy of Kathleen Ball Sebastian. Katey dedicated her life to improve the lives of children throughout her community through literacy, education, and community development. Katey’s Kids seek to assist children of the communities they serve, work, and live in. The Foundation emphasizes the need for modest and reputable citizenship, quality education, and community development through donating one’s time and self for the greater good of the community.

Kathleen Ball Sebastian was the second of five
children born to Harry and Ruth Ball. Katey had a strong
work ethic, a quiet, loving spirit, and served as a mentor
for those in her community.

Sebastian Corporation

In 1946, Sebastian began providing the communities in and around the Central Valley with telephone, internet and security along with additional communication and information technology services. These supplies are available to individuals, businesses, and public institutions around the Valley. The Corporation has provided trusted and exceptional service to its customers for over 65 years.
