Foundation Day

December 10, 2008

The Foundation for Saline Area Schools had a busy day on Tuesday.  Their regular 7:30 am meeting began at Saline High School in the “Hive” restaurant operated by the South and West Washtenaw Consortium culinary arts program.  The members then received a tour of the SWWC programs from Director Ms. Jody Gielinski and Program Coordinator Mr. Dave Jodway.

The tour included the Agriscience, Automotive Technology, Early Childhood Education, Culinary Arts & Hospitality, Electronics/Computer Servicing, Health Sciences, Machine Tool Technology, Marketing, Visual Imaging Technology and the Welding & Fabrication Technology programs.  The staff was present to explain their department and direct the explanation of the facilities and equipment.   Where students or student work was displayed, the tour group noted that the excellence in skills and technique was evident.

The foundation was back at the high school at the end of the day to help celebrate our National Merit Scholars at a reception at 5:30 pm.  Foundation President Mr. Lou Candiotti then presented the 2008 annual report to the Board of Education at the regular meeting.  His presentation noted the 22 grants awarded, totaling $31,612. “These are extraordinary times and we will reach out with extraordinary measures to provide the support necessary to maintain the tradition of excellence throughout Saline Area Schools,” Mr. Candiotti noted.  On behalf of the Saline Area School staff – we greatly appreciate the support of the foundation.

    I was more than impressed by the opportunities available with the Consortium. The students are amazing, clever, and devoted. I also discovered an amazing group of talented, dedicated, and passionate teachers. Wow!
