Program 1

Dual Credit Course Scholarships

The Education Foundation is helping students prepare for a postsecondary education through the Dual Credit Course Scholarships program. Hallsville High School students can take 36 college credit hours. In today's uncertain economy, more students than ever are faced with financial challenges that result in their inability to take advantage of these dual credit courses. For this reason, the Hallsville Education Foundation began giving dual credit course scholarships in the fall of 2010. To date, we have given 38 scholarships totaling just under $18,000. The scholarship efforts include not only academic courses, but cosmetology, culinary arts, and ag mechanics (welding).

Program 2

Academic Recognition

The data is clear: students who earn a diploma lead more successful lives by every measure - financial and otherwise. Children require positive role models who can help them realize the benefits of staying in school, seeing what a brighter future looks like in order to want to do the things to earn it, and mentoring them to attain their goals. The Academic Recognition program is a great way to honor Distinguished Educators who make a difference in a student's life. The Top 10% of a graduating class is awarded a medal and the educator that made a difference in their lives is awarded a plaque during a reception in their honor in May each year.

Program 3

Grants to Teachers

The Hallsville Education Foundation "grants to teachers" program provides funding for creative and innovative grant programs that will elevate our school system to the next level...future teachers, engineers, scientists, perhaps even a mayor. Teachers are genuinly concerned about our students succeeding; they are focused on the needs of students and enjoy implementing creative teaching strategies in their classrooms. But the truth is, budgeted dollars are limited. The Education Foundation is a critical piece to the advancement of Hallsville Schools. Since 2002, the Education Foundation has awarded $215,822.99 in classroom grants.
