A Brief Overview of the Foundation:
The Maryville City Schools Foundation (MCSF) is an independent, community-based 501(c)(3) organization chartered exclusively to support educational excellence and innovation for the students of Maryville City Schools.
The Foundation supports programs and learning opportunities that achieve academic excellence, for which Maryville City Schools are well-known statewide. MCSF also takes great pride in offering funding for the annual Lamar Alexander Scholarships awarded to graduating seniors selected from the Maryville Scholars program at Maryville High School.
Chartered in 1991, MCSF seeks financial grants and donations of treasure, time and talent from the community, creating a vital link between the private sector and the Maryville City School system.
Great education must start somewhere. Since the first graduating class in 1918, the Maryville City School System has become well-respected for serving as the source of excellence in education for many thousands of students.
The Starlight Awards program annually celebrates educational excellence by recognizing the accomplishments of graduates, the dedication of those who serve the schools, and the partnerships of those who support educational opportunities in the Maryville community. The Starlight Awards Gala will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2012 at the Clayton Center for the Arts, 6:00 p.m. Read more...
