The Irving Schools Foundation hosted an extraordinary and fantastic event for the young scholars. When I stepped foot into the building, I felt like a celebrity. It felt as though I was someone of importance and that really made me jump for joy. At many times, aspring students are not recognized for their hard work. ISF changed that and made all of its scholars feel special and welcome. Overall, it was a great and fun experience that I will remember for years to come.

The Irving Schools Foundation does so much for our Irving ISD community. As a teacher, I have had the chance to see students succeed because they had the monetary help. I have also seen teachers be able to get items for their classrooms and attend conferences. I have been honored to receive several different grants, and this last year was lucky to receive a scholarship to help further my career as a librarian. The staff at ISF is always willing to answer questions and help. It is a great organization and I am so thankful that they are here.

My dealings with the Irving Schools Foundation have been nothing but favorable. I have dealt with them both as a blessed recipient of their scholarship program, and as a liaison for a local JROTC program. In the former, I received prompt answers to any questions, lavished by the V.I.P. treatment at their scholarship award banquet, Breakfast With the Stars, and enjoyed the courteous staff. In the latter, I met with the foundation's president, and was impressed by both her efficacy, and efficiency.

I am very grateful to have received the ISF scholarship for school. I am current employee of Irving ISD and work in Human Resources. I am also attending school as a full time student and pursuing my degree in Business with a focus in Human Resources. Receiving the scholarship has paid for another year of school and given me a great deal of encouragement. With the ISF scholarship I will be able to finish school on time and continue to advance my career and grow as an individual.

The Irving Schools Foundation has been providing scholarships for students in Irving for more than 30 years! As the Foundation has grown, it has expanded to providing grants for teacher education, special classroom projects, campus projects, and individual awards to students. It runs on a very lean budget with robust community and volunteer support, and even the IISD employees get involved! Teachers and staff can donate to the Foundation through a payroll deduction, and so many of them participate! I am honored and humbled to be a part of this great organization, and I am so thankful for our corporate sponsors and community donors who help us do so much for our kids!

Nice entertainment! Did not get bored as much as I thought that I would have. My mother was actually sat at a different table from me, so that was an inconvenience.

I have been a part of Irving Schools Foundation since its inception. It has always done so much for the children and teachers of this district, but in the last 5 years the amount of money awarded in grants and scholarships has been absolutely amazing. Over $200,000 awarded last year in student scholarships alone! How many other districts can say this? How many nonprofits can say this? This organization and its CEO and board are amazing. I am proud to be a small part of it.

The Irving Schools Foundation has been a wonderful resource to fund initiatives on my campus that have expanded learning beyond the four walls of my classroom. They have provided resources for me to allow my students to create a community garden that has allowed my students to grow vegetables to donate to those in need in the community as well as catnip to donate to our local animal shelter. I have seen them fund projects that allow students to enrich themselves as learners at all levels of education from Pre-K to High School in ways that have allowed those students to give back to the community and I am proud to be a supporter of the Irving Schools Foundation through my charitable giving as well.

I feel both blessed and grateful for my scholarship I received through the Irving School Foundation (ISF). Of the hundreds of scholarships I applied for, ISF was the only support received to help me pay for college. Had it not been for ISF, I would have had to attend college on an almost ""all cash" basis which is next to impossible. So thank you ISF. I pray the foundation continues to flourish and that you continue to help students like me!
