Minooka school district announces new foundation

The Minooka Community High School District 111 wanted an opportunity where they could help inspire and educate their students beyond the four walls of a classroom, and extend creative learning and development time far into the future.

The opportunity presented itself this last spring and early summer when a group of community members, Minooka Community High School (MCHS), and the MCHS Board of Education established the District 111 Foundation for Educational Excellence.

The mission of the foundation is to inspire excellence, foster innovation and nurture potential.

The foundation has established four main goals: monetary support for the MCHS community through innovative initiatives, technology upgrades and capital improvement opportunities; conduit for community members and alumni who wish to leave a legacy to MCHS; honor tradition by recognizing our rich history; and strengthen community engagement through outreach and events.

The foundation will host its initial fund raising efforts with a holiday-themed event in December. Financial donations can be sent to District 111 Foundation for Educational Excellence, 26655 W. Eames St., Channahon, IL 60410.
