In 2014, a group of concerned business people in Lake Worth, Texas, took note of the fact that many teachers in their own school district did not have the basic materials and supplies needed to properly educate students in their classrooms. An average poverty level higher than the state average and a graduation rate lower than the state average compelled them to take action. Their goal was to provide teachers better tools to implement more innovative methods of connecting with their students, sparking a love for learning that would burn brightly for years to come.
Our mission is to partner with the community to provide resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovative opportunities for all students in the Lake Worth Independent School District.
Our goals are to enhance and enrich educational opportunities for students, support staff for innovative efforts and recognize staff for exemplary teaching, and involve the community in assuring a quality education for the leaders and workers of tomorrow.
Our priorities are:
Innovative Teaching Grants
Recognition of Academic Achievement
Recognition of Teaching Excellence
