A big congratulations to our very own Take Stock in Children student Naseem Hamed -- honored with the prestigious Lightning Foundation Community Hero of Tomorrow Award Saturday night during a Tampa Bay home game at Amalie Arena! Naseem, a Lakewood High School senior and member of the Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT) program, received a $25,000 scholarship to help him with his college education and another $25,000 that will go to the Pinellas Education Foundation and to helping support students in the county. Naseem was honored for his community service. He serves as a tutor both to STEM robotics students and underprivileged students in an after-school literacy program – and led a team in creating an app that helps fellow Pinellas County Schools high school students make sure they are on track with graduation requirements. Way to go Naseem – we’re proud of you! ... See MoreSee Less

Another Evening of Excellence has come and gone, but we thought you might enjoy one more look at the special show that took place on January 28, 2019 at the Mahaffey Theater. Here’s a minute-long recap of the event, produced by the Pinellas Education Foundation and made possible by presenting sponsor Aetna. It was a night when students, parents, business leaders, and other members of the community joined together to honor the best Pinellas County Schools teachers – and cheered on Plumb Elementary’s Nicole Kenngott for winning Teacher of the Year.

In addition to Aetna’s key role, we are grateful for the support of DITEK Surge Protection, Suncoast Credit Union, Ajax Building Corporation, Clearwater Gas System, Helios Education Foundation, KPMG, Caspers Company, Nielsen, Nova Southeastern University - Tampa Bay Regional Campus, Transamerica, and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Congratulations to Ashley Caron, our 2018-19 Pinellas Education Foundation Volunteer of the Year! Ashley is member of our Take Stock in Children committee and works at St. Petersburg College as Assistant Director of Accreditation and Assessment in the Office of Academic Effectiveness & Assessment. For the past four years, Ashley has selflessly given her time as a Take Stock in Children mentor. Her current mentee is Largo High School senior Shukera (pictured here), and Ashley has been a huge asset in her life, helping her stay on track academically.

Ashley has a passion for education and improving our community, and also seeks opportunities to encourage more of her colleagues at SPC to become mentors. She has also prepared presentations for committee meetings that review how the Take Stock in Children college students attending SPC are progressing.

“I don’t know what to say other than thank you from the bottom of my heart!” she said of her honor. “The last few years of involvement with Take Stock in Children have provided me with so much joy and appreciation for the opportunities the program creates for Pinellas County students. The opportunity to serve has been my pleasure and I am honored to have received this award!”
