The Union County Education Foundation is the only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to mobilizing community and business support for all 53 Union County Public Schools. For the benefit of students and teachers, we are Championing, Funding, Innovating, Advocating, Connecting, and Strengthening. We believe that all students deserve the best possible education and that teachers are our most valuable resource.
I cant imagine that there is anyone else in all of Union County whose family has been so touched by the work and mission of the Union County Education Foundation. In 2014 as the Union County Teacher of the Year, I was shocked to receive a $1,000 award from the Education Foundation in recognition for being selected. On morning in 2016 Education Foundation volunteers surprised me with a $1,500 LIFT grant and again awarded me a $500 LIFT grant in 2017. Lastly, both my children received college scholarships from UCEF.
The Union County Education Foundation has helped strengthen my self-confidence as a teacher and helped me realize that my dreams; are the dreams of others too and I CAN be the one that puts these dreams into action. UCEF made a very important event in my community possible and for that, I am forever thankful. UCEF is easy to work with and truly wants to help and make a difference in our community!
Students in one class at Wolfe were formerly unable to participate in stirring or in self-feeding after the recipe was complete. After implementing the adaptive "good grip weighted utensils" they were able to stir and self-feed for the first time ever in this class! Thank you so much for supporting this project and the amazing students of Wolfe School!
