Shickley Invests in the Next Generation
Shickley Community Foundation Fund is intent on making this small town of 376 a viable option for young families. And it is one of the few organizations the school district can turn to for funding to support the extra amenities that make living in Shickley more attractive. The Fund has provided grants large and small – from playground equipment for pre-school and day care children, to iPads and business curriculum for junior high students, to sophisticated interfaces and sensors for experiments for the high school science department.
Good schools and quality affordable child care are key to attracting young adults to the community. As affiliated fund treasurer Joe Kamler remarked with a laugh, “Through the years the school has been one of our best customers!”
