    Thank You from the Miami East Education Foundation board members . . . Viking Fest 2024! 

    VikingFest 2024 was a great success—thanks to you, the Miami East community.   We thank each of you for your donations and for your participation.    

    Special thanks to Arliss Perry for emceeing the event, board members, former board members and teaching staff for providing a fun-filled “Carnival” section that filled both gymnasiums, the Junior Class After-Prom Committee for providing delicious food, the students and the art teachers for contributing to the art display, the high school art students for the ever-so-popular face painting, the high school students providing hair bead designs, and the students who baked desserts (under the supervision of Julie Mack) and each of you who contributed to the baking competition, bake sale and cake walk!

    Thank you to Sheila Koble for once again organizing the popular baking corner, including obtaining judges, and for all you did to make the baking corner a great success. Thank you for the Stage Entertainment by Gotham City Brass Quintet, A-Major A-Capella Group (high school choir students), Little Miss and Mr Viking Competition participants (and our judges Angela Meiring and Connie Binns), Viking Couple Competition (featuring the Bodemiller’s, Buse’s, Davis’, Hiegel’s and Patton’s), and the MEHS Beauty and the Beast cast for their performance.  Thank you to the numerous adult and student volunteers who showed up to offer their assistance.

    Besides being an enjoyable day, this event generated funds that will be invested in Miami East students in an assortment of ways, including student scholarships and grants for learning-enhancement projects.  Obviously, none of this could happen without the contributions of many, many people; and we appreciate each and every one of you.     Thank You!

    Creating opportunities for the students of Miami East Schools . . .

    The Foundation exists to support the enrichment of Miami East students through scholarships and school personnel grants.  To date, the Foundation has awarded over $256,000 in scholarships and grants—a feat made possible through the support of many caring individuals in the Miami East community.

    Background:  In 2003-2004, the Miami East Board of Education, acting upon recommendations gathered through the Miami East Local Schools and Community Strategic Planning process, approved the establishment of the Miami East Education Foundation to provide financial support not available through public funds.  The Foundation was established as a component fund of the Troy Foundation.*

    Mission of the Foundation:  To enhance the educational experience of Miami East students.

    Goals of the Foundation

    • To raise, maintain, and distribute funds to be awarded as scholarships for graduating Miami East students and as grants for school personnel.  (Grants are awarded to school personnel for programs and materials designed to enrich the learning experiences of students.)
    • To strengthen partnerships among businesses, community members, and Miami
      East Schools.

    *In the Internal Revenue Code, The Troy Foundation is categorized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, publicly-supported charitable organization.  Because the Miami East Education Foundation (MEEF) is a component fund of The Troy Foundation, donations to MEEF qualify for the maximum allowable tax deduction for charitable donations.  Please check with your tax consultant for details.

     We are grateful for your continuing support.  Without you, the Foundation could not function.

    Donations of any amount can be made any time.
