THE WEST CENTRAL EDUCATION FOUNDATION
The mission of the West Central Education Foundation is to “partner with the community to make lasting improvements to West Central Schools that will enhance the total educational experience for all of its students”. The West Central Education Foundation Board of Directors invites all parents, families, alumni and others interested in this mission to join their efforts.
The West Central Education Foundation was incorporated in 2009, initially funded with a generous gift from a donor who believed in the value of a comprehensive education.
The foundation provides structure for community support and partnership with District #235. It operates independently from the school District, yet fosters the District’s ongoing efforts to help our students attain an even greater level of success.
Since 2009, the Foundation has provided scholarships for deserving West Central graduates who are furthering their education. In addition, the Foundation has funded other projects requested by certified staff of the district that benefits large groups of students.
The West Central Education Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of the following volunteers: Marissa Gibb, President; Chris Cook, Vice President; Linda Reaves, Treasurer; Amanda Randall, Secretary; and Todd Ackermann, Sheila Forbes, and Ray Cavanaugh. District Superintendent Paula Markey and Board of Education President Dr. Lonnie Brent serve as Ex Officio members of the Board of Directors.
