Stacy Meyer, president of the Spring Grove Area Educational Fund (Ed Fund) presented a $50,000 check to Cindy Huber, President of the Spring Grove Area School District Board of School Directors during the board meeting on Monday, February 17, 2015.
The Spring Grove Area Educational Fund is focused on supporting the educational needs of the District's students in grades K-12. Meyer explained: "The Ed Fund Board met recently to discuss how best to assist all the students within the district and looked to the District's planned Technology Initiative as the most effective way to improve the educational experience of our K-12 students. We offer this contribution to help upgrade the WIFI infrastructure needed for this initiative."
Since its inception in 2008, the Spring Grove Area Educational Fund has grown to a net worth of $800,000 and has used its earnings to help fund such things as drivers education, literacy education, summer educational programs, the Business and Career Expo, co-curricular competitions, College in the High School and mini grants to teachers. The Fund holds endowments with the York County Community Fund, and sponsors annual fundraising activities, such as the Officer David Tome Memorial 5K and other events.
