Foundation Annual Report 2018

25 C E L E B R A T I N G • Y E A R S • SET SEG and MASB have been recognizing and rewarding programs in public schools throughout the state for 25 years through the Education Excellence Awards. Since it was first launched, grants have been awarded to programs designed to improve science, technology and math through STEAM programs, reading and writing as well as innovative programs created to address issues such as bullying and suicide. Awards have been issued to increase community service and promote leadership. Recipients appreciate the recognition from their community and local media for their outstanding work and use their grant dollars to reinvest in their programs. This year gave us even more reason to celebrate as we achieved a milestone of 25 years. To celebrate, we awarded 25 grants of $2500 to each winner and celebrated with a ceremony of their choice within the district. It was a monumental year as we honored our winners and looked back at the tremendous impact these grants have had on thousands of lives.
