2015 Award for Community Service

The TCSD Foundation was organized in 2006 with a mission to enhance the education of students in our school district. The Foundation pursues its mission through programs including grants to teachers for innovative projects outside the school budget:

  • Kids Discover the Trail, a program coordinating educational field trips to sites on the Discovery Trail for every Trumansburg student grades preK-6
  • The Trumansburg Troubadour newsletter on issues facing our school district produced in collaboration with talented students, and …
  • An Award for Community Service, to be made tonight to a graduating senior.

In the words of one of her recommenders:

This year’s recipient of the $500 TCSD Foundation Award for Community Service  “takes her work seriously, implements her beliefs in her daily interactions with her peers, and stands up for those in need of support, sometimes at her own personal cost. She is talented in so many areas. Her contributions to our theater program are unprecedented. She is a true scholar and artist. I am so proud of her ability to stand up for what she believes in and to create change.”

This year, the TCSD Foundation Community Service Award goes to Kelsey Broadfield.
