The photo above is of Lisa Cruz flanked by two of our three fearless leaders Bob MacKinnon and Doug Bell - Mike Elliott was the photographer.  

There were no kids on campus last year,  and the leadership class wanted banners on campus to welcome everyone back.   We funded this one and helped fund another at the main entrance to campus. 

Doug, Mike and Bob met with Lisa Cruz, the Senior Administrative Assistant who is managing our Class of ’65 Legacy Fund.  The focus in the past has been on serving individual students that created auditing and other issues for the administration.  Going forward it was decided to focus on extra curricular program needs that benefit the needier students who want to participate.

The Class of ’65 Legacy Fund is alive and well! 

Going into the season of Thanksgiving, you may wish to make a difference in the lives of the current Savanna Students.  Any amount that you are able to donate is much appreciated.

Lisa Cruz the Senior Administrative Assistant at Savanna High School  is once again able to receive donations directly.

Checks to be made out to:
