The West Carrollton Education Foundation (WCEF) experienced another successful year in 2015. We hosted the 3rd Annual Spring Gala with the theme “Set Sail for Success”. It was a time to focus on the mission of WCEF and its importance to the community. More than $8,000 in grants were awarded to teachers in West Carrollton Schools. Two new members were inducted into the Distinguished Service Hall of Fame. Excellence in Education award recipients were honored, and “I Am a Pirate” members recognized. The Foundation is able to continue these traditions because of the financial support of our donors, and we thank you!

The Board expresses its sincere gratitude to Dr. Larry Campbell who served for many years as the West Carrollton School Board liaison to the Foundation. The service he provided during his tenure will always be remembered. As Larry has moved into retirement, WCEF welcomes Barbara Gardecki, Principal of Harold Schnell Elementary School, as the new School Board liaison.

Again, on behalf of The Board of Trustees, thank you for choosing to partner with WCEF in 2015. None of what we do would be possible without the ongoing support of our donors. As we approach the end of the year, please consider helping us finish strong by making a tax-deductible gift to the West Carrollton Education Foundation. We look forward to 2016 and new opportunities to grow and make a lasting impact on the lives of student attending West Carrollton Schools, and the community.

Community leaders established the West Carrollton Education Foundation in 1989 to provide supplemental, private funding of enrichment opportunities for students. WCEF was one of the first public school foundations established in the greater Dayton area and for twenty-five years it has worked with individuals, community groups and corporations to ensure that the quality of education in this community is comparable to the finest schools in the country.

By upholding the West Carrollton School District’s reputation for excellence, the Foundation plays a role in developing outstanding students, attracting and retaining excellent teachers, maintaining high quality schools, and delivering results that keep the West Carrollton Schools among the region’s elite.

Please consider supporting the West Carrollton City Schools by making a tax-deductible gift to the West Carrollton Education Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit and gratefully accepts contributions to its annual fund and endowment. Bequests and memorial gifts are welcome, and donors also have the option of establishing a special fund within the Foundation.
