Perrysburg Schools Spotlight
We hope you enjoy our monthly eNewsletter, spotlighting excellence in our programs, students and employees!

Program Spotlight
Philanthropy Club
Perrysburg High School
Philanthropy Club MeetingSuperintendent Thomas L. Hosler recently won the Martha Holden Jennings Outstanding Superintendent Award, which includes a $10,000 grant. The grant will be used for a deep learning experience through Perrysburg High School Philanthropy Club. The club provides students with an understanding and appreciation of philanthropy, including a grant-making lab. The Lisa Stocking Gruver ’95 Memorial Fund established the grant lab to promote philanthropic and community leadership in Perrysburg in a way that recognized her commitment to serve others and be a leader in her community.

PHS Philanthropy Club will give every dollar of the Martha Holden Jennings Superintendent Award away through the grant lab and, by doing so, they will continue to learn the power that giving has to change lives.
