our purpose

Greetings from our President

On behalf of the Lufkin ISD Education Foundation, I would like to thank you for making 2017 another successful year. Due to your generosity, this past December we were able to give out over $54,000 in innovative teaching grants during our annual Prize Patrol, which benefited all of the schools in the Lufkin school district.

As parents, teachers, administrators and community members we want the schools in Lufkin to be the best.  Countless studies show that student achievement is highest when there are strong partnerships between families, schools, and communities. The Lufkin ISD Education Foundation works very hard to grow these partnerships.

We are thrilled to have hired a new Executive Director, Vickie Evans, long time educator and dream maker and w are excited to see her take this already successful organization to new heights. I love that she wants the kids to be competitive, while not only they are in school, but competitive when they enter the workforce. We know that though these educational experiences we are helping this dream become a reality.

Let’s keep the momentum growing! You may partner with us by giving to the annual campaign, contributing a matching gift or donating in honor or in memory of a favorite teacher, friend or family member. Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue to provide a rewarding educational experience in our schools for many years to come.

Thank you for your continued support,

 

With Warmest Regards,

Scott Neill

President 2018
