Foundation Phonathon a Success!

Last week’s Winter Phonathon for the Annual Fund Campaign raised over $13,900 in gifts and pledges for the school!

This brings our campaign total of received gifts to $156,169 and our current parent participation to 52% overall with class representation as follows:

                                          Senior parents:          63%

                                          Junior parents:          57%
                                          Sophomore parents:   55% 
                                          Freshman parents:     36%

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, and thank you to our dedicated parent volunteers (current parents, alumni parents, and one former Director) who put in an extraordinary effort to make this happen:

John Aaron, Sharon Baxter, Lori Bekenstein, Charles Byles, Bruce Carney, Rob Comet, Carolyn Dean, Lori Garrett, Tom Grinnan, Leslie Hausser, Michael Huennekens, Douglas Hunt, Aimie Jones, Amber Kennedy, David King, Mathis Kirby Powelson, Beth Kunberger, Laura Lewis, Marianne Macon, Trish Molver, Carla Quick, Helen Ragazzi, Barbara Reese, Susan Rucker, Laura Ruml, Doug Scheibe, Melissa Shaw, Sandra Shelley, Julie Sidharta, Brian Thomas, Nancy Tynes, Julie Weissend, Elizabeth Wong, Bill Yates, and Amy Ziegler.

The Foundation also sends a special note of thanks to our talented chefs, Mary Ellen Barton, Charlotte Cerne, Karen Monks, and Carolyn Cockrell, for their tasty dinners that energized our callers and helped fuel this year's Winter Phonathon effort. 

The Governor’s School Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign supports programs for students, grants for teacher continuing education, and special projects for facilities and equipment.
