Central Baldwin Educational Foundation: History
The Central Baldwin Chamber of Commerce facilitated a meeting on April 4, 2008, at the Loxley Civic Center for the purposes of gauging the interest of local business owners, community leaders, and educators, to form an education foundation for the Central Baldwin area schools. Leah Ann Overstreet with the newly formed North Baldwin Education Foundation provided information on setting up a non-profit, creating by-laws, etc. Several organizational meetings followed with the culmination of the Central Baldwin Education Foundation established, and the Board of Directors voted on July 8, 2008. The Central Baldwin Education Foundation has been created to encourage academic excellence in the Central Baldwin area schools by providing funding which is not available through traditional local, state or federal sources. The Foundation provides opportunities for teachers and staff to develop innovative projects through grants; to invest in programs and enrichment activities that have a positive impact on student success; to encourage a continued interest in and support of public education through a network of businesses, individual and community involvement; and to seek and cultivate funding sources for educational excellence.
