District Drive Results
2013 - 2014 District Drive: The Results are in!
Posted on 10/25/2013


Waco ISD employees, parents and students are given the opportunity to participate in a four-week campaign each year, benefiting the WISD Education Foundation. This campaign is known as the DISTRICT DRIVE. Every year the support and charitable giving is remarkable. Waco ISD supports our educators and brings funding for much deserved creative classroom grants.

On Friday, October 18th the district had a check presentation to the WISD Education Foundation at half time during the WHS vs. UHS football game. Our number has grown since the presentation to an outstanding $64,117.09. That is $13,745.75 more than last year!

This would not be possible without your support and generous donations. Thank you from the entire WISD Education Foundation Board!

Thursday, October 24, 2014, the WISD Education Foundation hosted a Celebration Luncheon for Campus Captains at George's Banquet Hall. Annually campuses and the Administration Building engage in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money for the cause.
