Hobart Educational Foundation

Special Projects

The Hobart Education Foundation is very proud to sponsor Team LEAD, a district-wide student mentoring and leadership program, and is also a major contributor to the Parents As Teachers (PAT) Program in the School City of Hobart.

The Foundation also funds special projects such as the Hall of Scholars Banquet recognizing the top 15 students in the Hobart High School graduating class, and the Hobart Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Educators Award recognizing three top educators from the elementary, middle, and high schools. New this year, it created a transportation fund to assist school groups with the costs of getting to and from events and activities. The Foundation also supports the Every 15 Minutes program which is presented to HHS students to re-inforce the importance of making good decisions at prom and graduation time.
