Trenton Educational Foundation Ignites 'A Blast!' For the Future

The Trenton Educational Foundation is holding the annual Signature Event on Friday, November 18, 2022, at Crystal Gardens in Southgate. The group hopes to host at least two hundred guests with anticipation of raising at least $60K for the Foundation.

SOUTHGATE, Mich. - Michimich -- "A Blast! For the Future, is our theme this year," said Kathy Kane, TEF Executive Director. "We will be featuring the many student initiatives that the TEF has funded the past years as well as honoring on our next Wall of Fame inductees." Futuristic attire is encouraged, and the group is planning for a Blast! for its guests.

The OUT OF THIS WORLD program will include futuristic fun, raffles, silent auction, and a family style dinner, and a recap program of last year's grants. The Wall of Fame committee also will induct new members that evening as well.

The Wall of Fame volunteer committee can induct a maximum of three people each year. They have inducted thirty people over eleven years. The recipients represent many Trenton High School graduates who have excelled in their chosen field of work. Many of the recipients were past Board Members, Superintendents, Principals and Teachers who made great contributions in making Trenton one of the best school systems in the state. Candidates must be separated with TPS for at least two years and not an active TPS employee to be considered. The ever-growing Wall of Fame is in the Trenton High School Lobby. This year's inductee are John Wukovits and the Trenton Rotary Club.

About the Trenton Educational Foundation:

Established in 2008 by a partnership of community leaders from various organizations, the TEF is now known as a source of "grants" that teachers can seek to help fund special projects and activities not within the budget. Over the years the group has also budgeted for providing scholarships to graduating seniors of THS.

All levels of Trenton public education are helped by the TEF. The Foundation funds six integral areas of education — cultural enrichment, scholastic enrichment, arts and education, technology and learning, continuing education and professional development.

The Trenton Educational Foundation (TEF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation created for the purpose of enhancing the educational opportunities for teachers and students within the Trenton Public Schools system. The Foundation's mission is to help achieve and maintain an extra margin of excellence. The TEF is an independent entity, not affiliated with the Trenton Board of Education.
