PAY IT FORWARD at Southeast

Pay it Forward Service Project at Lincoln Southeast High School
Written by Sue Wilkins
 
Hi everyone! I want to let you know about something that Brent Toalson, the principal at LSE is starting that you might be interested in helping with.
He's initiated a "Pay it Forward Service Project" that allows juniors at LSE to develop a plan for a service project. The winning project is awarded a grant to carry out the plan during their senior year. Brent wants to encourage and fuel their leadership skills and desire to serve their community. Projects like this need funding, so I wanted to be sure our class of 1972 knows about it and will hopefully join me in helping out. If you are interested, you can mail your donation to the LPS Foundation (5905 O Street, Lincoln 68510) or you can give online through the Foundation website (www.foundationforlps.org). Please be sure to indicate your gift is for the LSE Pay it Forward Service Project. This is a tax deductible donation and is a great way to encourage and support current Southeast students eager to serve their community.
Brent has also started a recognition wall at the school called the LSE Service Wall of Honor. He's recognizing people who have acted on their ideas to benefit LSE and the Lincoln community.
Please consider a contribution to the Pay it Forward Service Project at LSE. This can be a such an important experience for not only the students at Southeast participating, but also for the people in their community who reap the benefit of the projects over the years.
If you have questions, please contact either Brent Toalson at LSE or Gary Reber at the LPS Foundation. Thanks so much for your consideration in supporting this excellent opportunity for students at LSE!
