Classroom Grant Celebration! This event honors our Classroom Grant recipients and our top donors who help make this program happen each year. Recipients share their projects and celebrate and learn from one another!!
Superintendent's Scholar Awards - The top three scholars from each high school are interviewed by a panel of community, Foundation and school staff and one student is selected as the Superintendent Scholar for the respective graduating class. Each student is honored at a moving program that showcases these gifted students and the educators who inspire them to achieve. Our Emma Yule members are invited to attend as well as each student's family and their honored educator.
High School Scholarship nights - The Foundation holds over $1.0 million in endowed and restricted funds that are invested with Washington Trust Bank and distributed yearly in the form of scholarships to our graduating seniors. Students are usually selected by each school's scholarship committee. Scholarship awards are presented by Foundation members or by family members of the honored individual.
