This endowment was started to honor Jeff who showed a strong commitment to education and students. In honor of Jeff's kindness, this endowment will be given to CHS students whose financial situations prohibit them from fully participating in co-curricular activities. The endowment funds will be dispersed based upon the following criteria:

  • Candidates/Organizations/Departments will be associated with Aberdeen Public School District

  • Towards students whose financial situation prohibits them from participating in High School co-curricular activities. For example, to help purchase athletic shoes, insurance to participate in events, meals on the road trips, etc.

  • Endowment proceeds will be distributed based on the approval of the Central High School (CHS) Athletic Director, CHS Fine Arts Director/Assistant Principal and CHS Principal

  • Due to the sensitivity of students concerning their or their family’s financial situation, recipients of this endowment will not be announced
