The Governor’s School Foundation would like to welcome all new and returning faculty, students, and families back for the new school year! For those of you who may not be familiar with the Foundation, it is a non-profit established to support the students and faculty of the Maggie Walker Governor’s School. In the 2014-15 fiscal year, the Foundation raised more than $357,000 to help enhance the educational experiences of MLWGS students, assist in sending teachers to workshops, conferences and graduate programs, provide student aid, and enhance technology in the school. Additionally, the Foundation serves as the MLWGS Alumni Office, helping more than 3000 alumni stay in touch with their alma mater. Over 28% of our alumni and 52% of current parents supported the Foundation last year.
Look for articles in Smoke & Scales over the course of the school year for stories of enhancements the Foundation was able to provide for Governor’s School students and faculty.
