The Waxahachie Junior Service League recently donated $4,000 to Waxahachie ISD to aid with campus and student needs.

Each year, the league donates $400 to each of the five elementary school campuses and $400 to the libraries of Turner Middle School, Junior High, Ninth Grade Academy, High School and Global High.

“We are pleased that we have organizations such as the Waxahachie Junior Service League who support the district the way they do,” said Thomas J. Collins, WISD superintendent. “It is imperative that schools have community support and Waxahachie ISD is fortunate to have a community that embraces education.”

The league also supports Waxahachie ISD’s DEAR Day, Education Foundation Golf Tournament, Festival of Trees and Project Graduation monetarily. The organization also sponsors a Girls State representative, a community service scholarship and the Stroope art scholarship.

In addition to providing funding, league members volunteer their time as DEAR Day readers, presenting the Go Van Gogh program and providing tutoring for WISD students.

“Our organization feels honored to be able to give so much to our school system,” said Amy Leath, league president. “Many of our members are past or present teachers, products of WISD or have children attending Waxahachie schools.

“We are happy to spend time volunteering in the schools and appreciate the relationship our organization shares with Waxahachie schools,” she said.
