The nonprofit organization supports the Hempfield School District’s educational mission by providing grants to the district’s faculty and staff for unique learning experiences and innovative teaching methods. In recent years, the organization has provided funding for a podcast studio in the high school, heart rate monitors for PE classes, and an artist residency for Celtic musicians, the Mari Black Trio. It also awards scholarships to graduating seniors for their post-secondary education in addition to sponsoring community events to raise funds and provide visibility for Hempfield schools.
“I am truly humbled and honored to have been chosen to serve as president of this incredible foundation,” said Faben. “It has been a pleasure to enrich the educational experiences of students within the district alongside my fellow board members. In my new role, I look forward to leading the board in its mission to further enhance educational initiatives for Hempfield students.”
