In a show of support for the growth and educational excellence at Alcuin School, the Theatre Booster Club presented a fundraising check to the school in the amount of $21,716.75.
“We are very grateful for the financial support our parents and the many hours of service and expertise they continue to give Alcuin,” said Luanne Samuel, the school’s director of philanthropy. “I think it’s a testament to how hard our staff and faculty work towards making Alcuin the best Montessori and IB school in the country, if not the world.”
Outgoing booster club chairs Shanti Shahani de Venegas and Dawn Savoie were on hand to present a check to Samuel in the Wyly Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, Oct. 2.
The booster club was created last year as a theatre club and has now expanded to include the other fine arts disciplines. De Venegas said parents began fundraising last year and were able to eclipse their goal of $20,000 in six months.
