We are a group of volunteers who work to provide scholarships, preserve the history of Wakefield and connect the Warrior Nation.
The main purpose of the Wakefield High School Education Foundation, Inc. is to provide scholarships to graduating Wakefield seniors. Established in 1986, the Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We are proud that, to date, we have been able to help 434 Wakefield graduates attend college. Since the creation of the Foundation in 1986, we have given a total of $2,494,999 in scholarships and teacher grants. All of those funds were raised through contributions and interest income.
Each spring a selection committee consisting of alumni from various Wakefield classes and current and retired staff members review the scholarship applications and select award winners. In addition, the Foundation maintains a database of Wakefield graduates and friends of Wakefield to assist reunion organizers and to connect the Warrior Nation. And the Foundation preserves the history of Wakefield though an archive.
