Kevin Kavajecz, Port Wing, has been named President of the South Shore Education Foundation (SSEF) succeeding Dick Kresky, also of Port Wing, who has retired after 12 years in the role. Kavajecz served as Treasurer during the same timeframe. At a recent Board of Directors meeting Dr. Gary Holquist, Orienta, was approved by the Board to become Vice President of Development. Karleen Tjepkema remains Vice President and Arthur Roebken Secretary.
The SSEF has provided support to students and staff in the South Shore School District, most notably by providing a personal computer to every student, which is theirs to keep upon graduation. In addition, the Foundation has supported music, forensics, civics, athletics and other activities through a grant process which has proven to be very successful.
Foundation Board members recently met with every teacher to know and understand needs in order to design ongoing initiatives which will continue to foster an environment of success for all.
The new leadership will continue to make grants in support of excellence at the South Shore School.
