It is with great honor and excitement that I lead the Van Alstyne Education Foundation into it's 5th year of serving the students and teachers in VAISD.
What a successful four years it has been for VAEF! We have experienced continued growth under the direction of a talented and hard working board of directors. With the support from local businesses and our great community, VAEF has given away $175,000 in senor scholarships and teacher grants.
It is thrilling to see enthusiastic 2nd graders use the chrome books we provided though your support. It is touching to see teachers overwhelmed with joy when they are awarded grants for their classrooms. And nothing beats watching seniors, and parents alike, beam with pride when accepting a college scholarship so that they may continue their education.
I hope you will consider attending the Denim and Diamonds gala in March, it is a great night! Or, if you would rather, lace up your sneakers for the Little Big Town 5k and 1 Mile Family Fun Run in May. There is also the chance to show off your shooting skills and enjoy the scenery at the Sporting Clays Classic in the fall. which ever you choose, they are all enjoyable events. More importantly, you're helping shape a child's future.
