K-12 Foundation gives $3,000 to each school
Members of the K-12 Foundation for LHUSD #1 came to the governing board meeting on 5/14/13 and presented a check for $3,000 to each school in our district. Foundation president Penny Burtless said this was the seventh consecutive year that the Foundation was able to make the check presentations. She said, "This is a gift from a community that cares deeply about education." She went on to thank the local businesses, organizations, and individuals that support the K-12 Foundation in its fund-raising efforts. The K-12 Foundation sponsors the annual Taste of Havasu event, Honey Baked Ham sales, and other fund raisers as well as hosting recognition events like the annual Academic Recognition Banquet which honors outstanding Lake Havasu High School seniors and their favorite teachers.
