October was a Big Month for the LEF

November 20, 2014

Thanks to our Ladue School District parents, educators and sponsors, the LEF held another successful Community Breakfast and ‘Due Run 4 Education, raising funds to support the excellence of the Ladue School District.

Stanley – Kurt Jaeger, Michael Karasick, Robert Millner, and the Das Family Foundation.

•    Hank Kauffman was our kickoff speaker; as a beloved Ladue Horton Watkins High School teacher for more than 50 years, he had many warm Ladue memories to relate!

•    Dr. Donna Jahnke, Ladue Schools Superintendent, shared the strategic vision for the district and mentioned several key initiatives, including a review of the math curriculum for the entire district and an ongoing renovation evaluation for the outdated LHWHS building.

•    Marjorie Dellas gave a moving tribute to her friend and classmate Will Bushelle, who graduated from LHWHS in 1994 and went on to live an extraordinary, courageous life. Will’s impact on those who knew him was truly inspiring.

•    Students told us how LEF grants enriched their educational experience, and it was wonderful to hear directly from them how your contributions to the Ladue Education Foundation make a difference in our schools each and every day.

The 2nd-Annual ‘Due Run was presented by Stifel and the LHWHS Class of 1994 in memory of classmate and Navy Seal Will Bushelle. A special thanks goes to the many Class of ’94 members who donated and participated.
