In our seventh grant cycle, JLSF awarded a mindfulness grant and a blacktop face lift grant at the elementary level; grants for Cubelets, Sphero RVRs, and a 3D printer to our middle school; and grants for ACT certified educator and Universal Design Learning training opportunities.
NEW BOARD PRESIDENT
Justin Hardesty, owner of the investment firm Hardesty Partners, is the new president of the Jackson Local Schools Foundation. “I could not be more pleased to continue the momentum of our school foundation, sustained by a terrific board of directors and led over the past two years by Jim Camp,” Mr. Hardesty said.
2020 PLUNGE WAS A SUCCESS
JLSF wrapped up our signature Plunge event in February. During the Polar Bear Plunge, teams form to raise money for both their charity of choice and the Jackson Local Schools Foundation. This year's event raised nearly $70K!
“Education is a great investment. Let’s work together
to provide exceptional opportunities for our
community’s children and the fine educators who
foster their growth.”
– Justin Hardesty, Foundation President
