Outstanding teachers, administrators and staff members are the essence of the Worthington School District’s reputation of excellence in education. To help students and families show appreciation for our educators’ commitment, the WEF has developed the Honor an Educator Program. Donations in any amount can be made to the Worthington Educational Foundation. You may honor a teacher, administrator or staff member who is currently on staff or someone who has been important in the past to your children. Those honored will receive a letter and award certificate from the WEF which will be presented in front of their classroom. Additionally, they will be recognized in a community publication.
Choosing to recognize an individual through this program will not only honor that special person, but will be a future legacy of that appreciation as a direct benefit to the students of the Worthington Schools through the WEF grants that are awarded annually to the teachers and schools. The WEF is a community-wide tax-exempt 501 (c )(3) organization dedicated to making the educational experience of our children something extraordinary. Funds are raised to allow grants to be awarded to teachers to provide projects and experiences beyond the basic curriculum. Grants are awarded three times per year to teachers (by application).
