BIO

STATEMENT FROM THE Board Chair

"The Okemos Education Foundation supports academic excellence at all levels of the Okemos Public School District. We fund classroom grants, professional development grants and special educational projects that are not covered by the district's budget. For the past five years, the OEF has also funded a significant number of the district's extra-curricular student clubs and organizations. We rely on Okemos parents, grandparents, alumni, business owners, and our community to support our mission through their generous donations. More information is available on our website: www.oefsite.org. Please join us in celebrating and enhancing academic excellence in our community. "
