I have been president of the Greenwood Education Foundation since it's inception in 2014, and it is my PASSION! The Foundation was formed to enhance the educational opportunities for ALL Greenwood students, and in the past six years, we have awarded over $170,000 in grants to teachers which has allowed them to provide educational curriculum and tools for their students that they would have gone without otherwise. All school districts are not alike. Some have to work harder and be more creative in giving their students the best, and Greenwood is one of those districts. The Foundation is the vehicle that has made that happen, and the winners are our students. As a parent of one former Greenwood student (now in college at Purdue) and a junior at the high school, I see first-hand the challenge teachers have to reach every student, and it is particularly challenging this year in light of COVID. I have heard the stories of the money they have spent out of their own pockets to meet the needs of every child in their classes, but the fact is, they shouldn't have to do that. and we can help. Everyone wants to give every child the best possible opportunity for success, and you can be a part of making that happen by giving to the GEF. December is a month for giving, and nothing warms the heart more than giving to kids and knowing the impact your gift is having on their lives. So please help me help them today by giving generously. Touch a heart; touch a life, be the difference with your gift to the GEF today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
