Almost a decade ago the Marathon Teachers Association began an initiative to increase funds in the MTA's scholarship fund used to award scholarships to selected MSD seniors. Staff members who desire to wear jeans on Friday donate a dollar for each Friday they wear jeans. We are generally able to award 5 graduating seniors $500 for use their freshman year ($250 per semester.) Any MTA member interested in participating in the selection process should consider volunteering for the committee that meets every May.
If you would like to participate to this worthy cause, you are encouraged to donate a dollar to the MTA Scholarship fund each time you wear denim in Fridays. You can donate weekly, monthly, by marking period (~$20), or for the entire year (~$40). Checks can be made payable to "MTA Scholarship Fund". Please give your donations to Tammy McDougal at the High School or Lynn Ryan at Appleby. Checks are preferred, but cash is accepted as well ... (Please make sure your name is included with the cash payment as Tammy keeps those records for your tax purposes). If you need a receipt for tax purposes, please see Tammy McDougal and she will create one for you.
Thank you, in advance, for your support !!
