For the second year in a row the foundation has awarded $10,000 to WISD Advanced Academics.  "We couldn't put this on without the support and funding from the foundation," says Larry Carpenter, Waco ISD Advanced Academics and event organizer. Carpenter continued by stating, "The foundation funds projects not covered by tax dollars.  The opportunity to partocpate at the elementary level allows our students to be more competitve when they reach high school."

This year's event will be held at Tennyson Middle School from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  The awards ceremony is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.  Public is welcome.   

And good luck to all of our participants!
