Together We Make an Impact
Your generous support provides the following experiences for students and educators in Utica Community Schools. We invite you to be a sponsor of these impactful annual events.
Evening of Excellence: Scholarship Awards
Since its inception, the Evening of Excellence has raised monies to support scholarships for deserving UCS seniors. Seniors apply for the Superintendent’s Scholarship each fall. The students who are selected embody the meaning of UCS Success by excelling in academics, displaying leadership qualities, serving the community, and overcoming personal challenges. Scholarships are given during a memorable celebration dinner. We are proud to support higher educational opportunities for these outstanding students. Through funds raised by the Foundation, over $300,000 in academic scholarships have been awarded since 2010.
Since 1993, the annual Career Focus luncheon brings together area workplace and community leaders with over 2,000 sixth-grade UCS students for a ‘business lunch’ experience. The adults act as mentors, sharing educational experiences and career acumen to the 8-10 students at their luncheon table. The distinctive community event encourages students to explore career options and interests. All sixth-grade students, with support from their teachers and media center specialists, create digital resumes and share their future career aspirations after high school. Career Focus has been fortunate to host many well-known state and local officials, sports figures, celebrated business leaders and prominent UCS alumni as keynote speakers.
The Educational Grant Program has awarded over $30,000 in grants to over 35 UCS educators. Grants are awarded to elementary and secondary teachers looking to innovate and exceed UCS curricular goals. Recent selected grant examples include Coding Comes to Life, Ozobots Across the Curriculum, and Broadcasting News and Events.The Foundation is pleased to enrich and expand educational opportunities for UCS students through educational grants that are relevant, engaging, and impactful.
