2015 HOF Brochure

Former Student Leadership honorees give back -- again!

The Foundation is extremely pleased to again recognize alumni David and Elizabeth (Bossard) Micheletti for their third generous donation of $2,500 to support our Leadership Grant program. The Michelettis made similar donations in 2013 and 2014. Dave was a Leadership honoree in the first group in 1998 and Beth in the second group in 1999. The Leadership Grant program recognizes 10 senior students with awards of $500 each toward their college expenses.

Thank you once again, Dave and Beth, for supporting this program! We hope that your donation will inspire other Panther alumni to support their alma mater by volunteering their time or with donations.

2015 Triathlon cancelled

Foundation inducts 5 new members at 2015 ceremony

The Foundation had a very successful Hall of Fame dinner at the Crystal Point on March 6. More than 375 people attended. We honored five Hall of Fame inductees, nine faculty members, and 10 senior student Leaders. The Foundation was able to raise the funding need to cover half the cost of the $5000 in Student Leadership grants that we presented to the 10 senior students at the dinner. The other half of the cost of the grants was covered by a donation to the Foundation. We also had some remaining funding that we applied towards our commitment to fund technology upgrades for the High School Media Center.

Please visit the Hall of Fame section for more information.

Media Center Upgrades

The Foundation has initiated a new CrowdRise campaign to raise funding for upgrading the Media Centers/libraries in the District’s 4 schools. Go Immediate effort is to finance the upgrade/replacement of 22 computers in the high school Media Center, replacing old Windows-based technology with Chromeboxes and large LED screens, using cloud-based computing. This configuration conforms with the School District’s evolving technology architecture. It will be more cost effective and easier to administer and control, and will give the students and faculty access to school work from school, home or mobile devices over a more secure environment.

This new configuration will also provide faster and more efficient platforms for accomplishing research on the internet and taking on-line standardized tests, such as the PARCC. Longer term is to accomplish similar upgrades for the middle and grammar schools to bring them more in line with 21st century library/media center capabilities and functionality.

You can support this effort by visiting our Media Centers Upgrade CrowdRise page. Give whatever you can -- every donation makes a difference, no matter how small. All donations are tax deductible.
