“We are excited about this new opportunity for our teachers,” says Chad Lewis, SHEF Board President. “They work hard to provide an exceptional education for our students, and we are pleased to provide them with additional tools for student success.”
The Spring Hill Education Foundation’s mission is to enhance the extraordinary educational opportunities for students, staff and patrons of the Spring Hill School District. Currently, the Spring Hill Education Foundation awards ten scholarships to graduating seniors pursuing post-secondary education. Funds for student scholarships and teacher grants are raised at the Annual SHEF Golf Tournament (next event May 1, 2017) and the Annual State of the District Breakfast.
