Mission The mission of the El Reno Public Schools Foundation, a non-profit entity, is to extend the existing curricula through innovative teaching projects, administer the endowed scholarship funds, implement annually the recognition of El Reno High School Distinguished Alumni, and support the mentoring program, Students Striving for Success.
Background The Foundation was founded in 1988. Since that time we have distributed over $400,000 to our Grants-to-Teachers program. We are awarding scholarships to deserving El Reno High School graduates to further their educations. Thanks to the generosity of Wilbur and Jean Gardner, long time residents of El Reno, we are able to endow annual scholarships. We have endowed monies to provide at least $1000 to a worthy school employee to further their leadership abilities through the Leslie F. Roblyer Leadership Grant.
Impact * Teacher grants for teaching projects that are innovative and thought
* Higher education scholarships to El Reno High School graduates from
   the Wilbur and Jean Gardner Scholarship Endowment and Gaylord and Barbara Reuter Endowment.

* A yearly Phantom Party, without festivities, to encourage contributions.
* Select distinguished alumni and honor them with plaques and a
  recognition banquet each November.
* Leslie F. Roblyer Leadership Grant, given each year.  
* Students Striving for Success, Mentoring Program
Hutchison Family Scholarship
Ryan Tinsley Memorial Scholarship
Needs We need to impact our community by enlarging the board of trustees. Our volunteer lists are very stretched. Because of this, we are unable to adequately provide the services that we feel can be done.
