HORSHAM — It will be an evening when teachers, students and creative education are celebrated. The Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation (HHEF) will pay homage to the most impactful Innovative Learning Grant recipients during its 25th anniversary celebration that will be hosted at the Talamore Country Club, located at 723 Talamore Drive in Ambler, Tuesday, Oct. 2.
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception, which includes light dinner and refreshments. Following the reception, the night continues with an awards presentation, which gets under way at 7:30 p.m. Philadelphia sportscaster Don Tollefson will serve as the event’s master of ceremonies.
The evening includes a grant showcase, demonstrations and student performances. A video presentation will be shown to guests that shows the Foundation’s impact on the school and Hatboro-Horsham community throughout the years.
The Foundation will present awards to Hatboro-Horsham School District educators who have made an impact in and outside the classroom and have made imaginative learning a priority.
The Foundation’s 25th anniversary celebration is made possible by the generous support of its sponsors, including Hatboro Federal Savings, Motorola Mobility, Janssen Biotech and the Hatboro-Horsham Education Association (HHEA).
HHEF Executive Director Laurie Rosard said the Foundation enriches the educational experience and students’ lives by offering them alternative learning opportunities outside of the traditional educational model that brings curriculum to life.
