The Friends of Normandy School District Foundation was modeled after the nationally acclaimed Carson Scholarship Foundation founded by the esteemed surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson. The Friends of Normandy School District Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit corporation as stipulated in the Articles of Incorporation filed in 2006. The Foundation is based upon the philosophy that public education can be endowed through a broad-based system of community support, thus providing another avenue for enhancing and augmenting educational opportunities for students and teachers in the Normandy School District.
In recognition of academic excellence, The Foundation recently held its fifth annual Grand Gala, a black-tie affair. More than 350 individuals attended the dinner/dance. More than $90,000 has been raised to support the Foundation.
