Help Needed for CCISD Students & Teachers in 2012
The Clear Creek Education Foundation has had an eventful year in 2011 and due to budget cuts to education, the need for education foundations has never been greater. To help grow the foundation and fill that need, the foundation hired Doug Frazior as its first executive director in early 2011. One of the major changes the foundation made in the year was to switch to an annual campaign while continuing to hold our signature events including an annual fashion show featuring CCISD juniors in May and the annual recognition gala honoring outstanding alumni and others in the community who contribute to CCISD’s success.
One of the first companies to contribute to the annual campaign for 2012 was BP with a generous $25,000 donation. That was followed by large donations from Purdue Fielder Collins & Mott, Texas Citizens Bank and LyondellBasell. All donors who contributed to the annual campaign at a level of $1,000 and above were honored at the foundation’s All Star Community Breakfast where CCISD alumnus Congressman Pete Olson made the keynote address and a surprise $1,000 donation to the foundation. The funds from the annual campaign will be used to benefit CCISD students and teachers through funding Innovative Instructional Grants, Clear Horizons, Early College High School, Career Exploration Technology Labs & National Board Teacher Certification.
In 2011 the foundation was able to award over $60,000 in grants that will impact up to 15,000 CCISD students and provide over $15,000 towards Clear Horizons Early College High School. As we approach 2012, the foundation is asking the community for support in reaching our goal to fund these initiatives that benefit CCISD students and teachers.
