Ms. Cindy Booker

BIO

Cindy is the Executive Director for the Foundation for Lovejoy Schools (FLS). FLS is a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the students, faculty, and staff of the Lovejoy ISD. Vicki joined the Foundation for Lovejoy Schools in January 2016.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Providing a high quality educational experience for each child in the Lovejoy School district is why we exist. We do this in two ways. First is by supporting the district's professional development program called Learning at Lovejoy. The Foundation has provided operating funds every year since the program began. This program is also open to any educator outside of the district. The second is the funding of innovative classroom grants. We have granted over $1.8 million to the district over the past 10 years. We encourage you to take a look at our website at www.foundationforlovejoyschools.org and join us in the valuable mission of enhancing education."
