New Arthur C. McCann Speaker Series Endowed at SEF

The Summit Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Arthur C. McCann Speaker Series, named in honor of retired Summit High School English teacher Arthur McCann. The endowment of the speaker series was made possible by a $50,000 donation from Nicholas Stephens, Summit High School Class of 1972, in honor of his former teacher. 
Mr. McCann is remembered fondly by Mr. Stephens and other students as a dynamic and caring teacher who had a lasting impact on them. SEF is thrilled to honor Mr. McCann with this endowment and to see his legacy continue. Each year, through our regular grants process, grants for speakers at the Summit Public Schools will be eligible for funding through proceeds from this endowment. 
This is an open endowment, and others who would like to celebrate Mr. McCann are invited to make contributions in any amount. To learn more about the endowment or to give, please visit the SEF website at, or email Christine Murray for more information.

"Spring For Excellence" Fundraiser a Resounding Success
Thanks to all who attended or supported our "Spring for Excellence Fundraiser" on March 11th at the Summit Elks Club. Our e vent co-chairs put together a very special evening for nearly 400 parents and community members to come together to celebrate a great cause. Our attendees brought lots of energy and enthusiasm to this evening of music, bidding on donated auction packages, creative raffles, and mingling with friends. The event raised over $120,000 that will support grants to our public schools. Visit the SEF website to learn more.
