LSAF Presents Generous Donation to District #7

Lincoln School Alumni Foundation donation to District 7

District #7 thanks The Lincoln School Alumni Foundation and President Herman Shaw for their generous donation of $50,000, which was presented at the May monthly Board of Education meeting.

A year ago, when the foundation inquired about what the District needed, it was identified that the position of a part-time family school liaison would be beneficial to provide support and identify obstacles hindering student success, whether it be attendance issues, home-life challenges, or a lack of necessary resources. With the support of the foundation, the District hired Wenifer Greer to fill that part-time position. During the past school year, Ms. Greer has conducted home visits, allocated resources, and established partnerships with other organizations to support students.

As the demand for this support has grown beyond what a part-time position can manage, the Lincoln School Alumni Foundation's donation will enable the position to be full-time. With the position becoming full-time, Ms. Greer will be able to reach more families and provide even greater support to ensure student success.
