As We Raise Funds for Foothiller Scholarships

2018tileIn honor of our historic anniversary, the GHS Educational Foundation is sponsoring a new scholarship fundraising program.

$100 for 100 Years

Donors will have their names, their families’, or their businesses’ names engraved on 2x4 inch gray with black lettering tiles, to be displayed on a wall near the front of the school.

In 2012, the Foundation set a goal to create a permanent Endowment Fund of $100,000.  As a result of last year’s successful campaign, we now have $100,000 invested with the San Diego Foundation. Please help us reach our new goal of $225,000 by the Fall of 2020.

Endowment Fund

Thank You to Jim Spackman, Class of 1959

In January 2019, the Grossmont High School Educational Foundation received a $100,000 donation to its Endowment Fund from GHS Hall of Honoree Jim Spackman, Class of 1958. 

With his donation, Jim shared, “In the spring of 1956, GHS admitted a 16-year-old Korean War orphan, who was almost illiterate. In two and a half years, Grossmont educated him sufficiently to graduate in June 1958 (as Valedictorian and ASB President) and go on to college (Harvard).  

A countless number of people helped me along the way. Dr. John T. Warburton, Principal; Mr. Walter R. Barnett, Vice Principal; Mrs. Eva Quicksall, Counselor; Dr. George C. Gross, Senior English teacher; Mr. John A. Burdick, ASB Adviser; Mr. Ed Kintzele, Tennis Coach; and Mrs. "Mom" Sherman, and even the students were kind and helpful to me. That is why I am deeply grateful and indebted to Grossmont."

With his donation, Jim increased the size of our Endowment Fund from $107,000 to $207,000, thus doubling the amount of yearly interest we will receive to support Foothiller students and staff.  Thank you, Jim!
