The Foundation is experienced in administering scholarships to students on behalf of donors.
In 2011, the District 99 Education Foundation began administering funds directed to a Math and Science Scholarship by an anonymous donor. Scholarships will be awarded annually to students pursuing professions in the math, science and engineering fields.
Another scholarship available is the Pappas Scholarship, created in 1999 in memory of George B. Pappas. The Foundation was asked to administer funds in his memory. George, as an English teacher and department chairperson at North High School from 1952-1984, was very involved and well known as a person who brought enthusiasm and energy to the classroom. Many remember him as “Mr. Spirit Sparker," and a person who generated much enthusiasm within the student body at rallies. His focus was on students and their education.
Scholarships and foundation gifts were established for those students of North High School who plan to pursue a career in English, Speech, Journalism or related fields and exemplify the qualities of George Pappas.
