To acquire and distribute resources to Highland Local Schools to supplement learning opportunities for its students, staff and community. We achieve this by providing direct support for student development, encouraging staff excellence and creativity, promoting the school district as a center for community learning, and helping to build a strong school partnership.
This school year, The Highland Foundation is offering 24 scholarship awards in the amount of $39,500. In addition to the scholarships offered each year, such as the William O. Wagar Memorial Math & Science Scholarship, the Steven J. Bilecky Memorial Scholarship, and the Hugh & Grace Eyerdom Memorial Scholarship among others, The Foundation has introduced several new opportunities for students to apply to this year.
Now in its 8th year, The One District One Book program, sponsored through The Highland Foundation, provides one book for all students in grades K-5 (approximately 1,400) and families to read together, stressing the importance of reading at home. ODOB provides excitement for students with activities at events at school to coincide with the common book. This year’s book is: Cleo Edison Oliver, Playground Millionaire by Sundee T. Frazier. The “book reveal” was held at each elementary school on January 24 with students assembling a giant puzzle throughout the day to reveal the book cover. The month-long reading program runs through the end of February.
