Sharing is caring!

Two-hundred-sixty-four Aldine ISD seniors received the opportunity to continue their academic careers by receiving either Aldine Education Foundation (AEF) or Aldine Scholarship Foundation (ASF) scholarships during an awards ceremony on May 11 at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center.
The two non-profit foundations joined forces to enable more Aldine ISD students to receive financial support for college, to provide additional choices for college and to award grants to teachers for innovative classroom instruction.
AEF, incorporated in 2012, became the umbrella organization for two funds: the ASF Fund, now under the direction of the Aldine Scholarship Foundation Board, and the AEF general fund. ASF’s permanent endowment totaling more than $2 million will continue to be managed by the Lone Star College System. The merger of AEF and ASF provides AISD students and teachers with greater resources and opportunities, and donors have more choices to support student success in Aldine ISD.
During the ceremony, AEF awarded 135 scholarships and 129 AISD seniors received ASF scholarships.
Prior to the awarding of the scholarships, former AEF recipient Carlos Galvan addressed this year’s recipients. The audience was also addressed by Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. Wanda Bamberg, who provided the Superintendent’s Challenge, and Dr. Gerald Napoles, president of Lone Star College-North Harris. AEF President Bill Ginder delivered the welcome and Saul Valentin, the Lone Star College Foundation Vice-Chairman, delivered closing remarks.
