The St. Johns County Education Foundation (SJCEF) held their 2nd Annual Donor Reception on May 26th at A1A Ale Works. The event honored valued donors who have worked with the SJCEF to fund and volunteer for numerous projects that directly benefit St. Johns County’s quality of living through its educational system.
Present at the reception were mentors from the Take Stock in Children program, tutors from the Supplemental Educational Services program, Beth Upchurch, the Teacher of the Year, Megan Miller, the Rookie Teacher of the Year, SJCEF Board members and local donors, such as The Bailey Group, Hydro Aluminum and Regions Bank.
Megan Miller, who was awarded the Rookie Teacher of the Year by the SJCEF, noted that this ongoing philanthropy is a civic lesson she did not have to find on the Internet. It is a real world example with local significance.
