INVEST IN IMPACT: Help our students succeed after high school
Wheeler’s Northwest Village School is a statewide leader in integrating a full continuum of services into a therapeutic day school model for its students and their families. We serve students from dozens of cities and towns across the state who can thrive in a more structured environment than they may be able to receive in their local district.
Their needs expand beyond graduation, however, and two areas are dramatically impacted by private investment:
- Scholarship support. Investing in scholarships directly helps struggling families afford post-secondary education like trade schools, community colleges, and other career-guiding options.
- The Samuel Marszycki Scholarship was established in 2021 to support a graduating senior with post-secondary education. It is named in honor of a former paraprofessional at Northwest Village School who passed away in June 2020. It was established by family and friends in 2021 in Marszycki’s memory and is supported through donations and the annual Sam-O Scramble Golf Tournament, which will celebrate its third anniversary this September. Its first award in 2021 helped support a graduating NVS senior who went on to study at a local community college. In 2022, we helped a graduating senior attend culinary school. The 2023 recipient aims to attend veterinary school.
- Technology. Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce, and private investments allow us to purchase equipment and technology to prepare our students for the vocational and professional careers of the future.
