Maroon & Gray Society Banquet

Saturday, May 16, 2020

Nittany Lion Inn

 

Every year, the Maroon & Gray Society Banquet brings together individuals, families, businesses and the community supporters for an evening to honor alumni, faculty, volunteers and teams, while doing something even more important: raising funds for important priorities in our schools.

The Education Foundation seeks recommendations from district administrators on which priority area is selected as the beneficiary of proceeds from the Maroon & Gray event. Past beneficiaries have been the marching band and the Mental Health Matters initiative.

For 2020, the Education Foundation, in partnership with the district, has chosen the Student Opportunity Grant program.

Since this program also receives funds from general donations to the Education Foundation, why will it also receive funds from the 2020 banquet? Simply, demand. Since awarding the first round of Student Opportunity grants in spring 2018, applications to the program have more than tripled, and the amount of dollars requested has nearly quadrupled.

Students, coaches, administrators and staff at schools across the district are eager to bring their innovative ideas to life for the benefit of students, and the Education Foundation wants to help!
