In an attempt to provide teachers in the Frenship Independent School District with additional funding, the Frenship Foundation for Leadership is gearing up for its fifth annual Denim and Diamonds Gala event. The event, which will feature a casino party theme, is slated for 7 p.m. on Feb. 11 at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center.Participants will receive chips to play a variety of games throughout the event. Sponsors and donors gather at the event to help raise money for teachers who want to enhance their students’ learning experiences orprovide them with the tools to further their education. “It’s great. I love whenever we get to deliver the checks (and) watch the teachers light up, just because they are receiving something thatin their eyes is a huge gift. Because not a lot of school district have anything like the Frenship Foundation to be able to supplement and getall these extra (funds) that they get,” foundation board member Shea Katilus said. “For the kids, to see how excited the teachers get is(great).” Foundation President Brandon Autrey presented a check to FISD Superintendent Michelle McCord last year, totaling $41,076.02 forinnovative teacher grants. FISD teachers submitted their advanced classroom ideas last summer and were awarded their individual checksduring campus ceremonies in the 2016 school year. Frenship Foundation for Leadership executive director Cindy Stephens said in an earlier interview that the teacher grants help to fundinnovative projects or programs they wish to implement in their classrooms that the school district’s budget may not always support. “It’s very awarding. Both my kids are at Frenship. I have a fourth- and fifth-grader at Bennett and to be able to give back to the teachershas done so much for my kids and their education,” foundation board member Misti Welch said. “It’s great to be able to give back toteachers with an event like this.” The Frenship foundation experienced a historic year in 2016 thanks in part to the teacher grant program. Combined with its scholarship program and additional events, the organization donated a cumulative $100,000 to the school district — thelargest annual donation in the foundation’s history. Katilus, who also has children enrolled in FISD, said the teacher grant program is rewarding to be a part of. “I love it because I went to school at Frenship and now my kids go to Frenship,” she said. “Just to be able to see it grow and for us to passon all these different opportunities and be involved and get to see all our hard work and fund-raising pay off — that is just a blessing forme.” For more information, contact Stephens at
