The WEF awards grants for innovative programs that will have immediate and lasting benefits to students in Westerville classrooms. Some examples of programs made possible by WEF funding include:

  • Student Connections: In 2015 the WEF awarded the largest grant to date of $9,800 for this important and long-lasting initiative aimed to connect students to diverse literature, mentors and tutors, as well as create opportunities to engage and address issues surrounding students’ social and emotional needs. Programs in this initiative include the Minority Scholars Program (MSP), Mentors Opening Doors, Enriching Lives (M.O.D.E.L), and the Spirit Book Club.

  • First Grade CD Production at Alcott Elementary: In January of 2017 Mr. Jim Ledford was awarded a $1,000 WEF grant and in this first year students were involved in the process of choosing songs, designing a cover, creating a name, advertising and selling the product.

  • Hydroponics Lab at Westerville North High School: In 2007 Mr. Jeff Bracken received a grant from the WEF to grow plants indoors under hydroponic conditions. Over the past decade this program has continued and even expanded!
