THE FOUNDATION | October 2019
Verizon Activates Student Creativity
Verizon, the second largest wireless telecommunications provider in the United States, awarded a $15,000 grant to the Seminole County Public Schools Problem Solving Incubator (PSI High) again this school year.

PSI High immerses high school students in a project-based, design-oriented setting that asks them to solve real problems which exist in our local community. Each year, our business and community partners work directly with teachers and students to develop a portfolio of projects that addresses their needs. Throughout the school year, in addition to their core classes, each student works directly on a partner project to solve one of their identified problems.

With the help from the Verizon grant, PSI High plans to double its enrollment this year. Thanks to Verizon for supporting business and entrepreneurship skills for our students.
Making A Difference
The faculty and staff at Seminole County Public Schools continue to demonstrate how dedicated they are to their students. The Foundation has presented its “Making A Difference…One Child At A Time”  Workplace Giving campaign to more than 50 work sites throughout the District and witnessed the generosity of the employees.

SCPS employees sign up to give back to the Foundation through payroll deduction. Over 2,000 employees support Foundation programs such as classroom grants, Teach and Employee of the Year, and Career Readiness Programs.
Fat Guy's Open
The 25 th Annual Fat Guy’s Open Golf Tournament to benefit The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools was a great success this year.

Attorney Dennis Salvaggio named “The Fat Guy” – Orlando Magic’s Biggest Fan partners with Modern Plumbing in Longwood each year to organize the charity event. About 130 golfers turned out at this year’s tourney at the Orlando World Marriott. They awarded a $2,500 scholarship to SCPS high school graduate Uriah Assing who now is a freshman at Valencia College. Uriah is studying to become a welder.
