Zach Collaros Foundation Recognized

Zach Collaros Foundation

The Zach Collaros Foundation received the SCS Volunteer of the Year Award for an outside organization at the recent Volunteers Dinner.
Accepting the Award was Foundation Board member, Atty. Jeff Bruzzese.
SCS has benefited in many ways from contributions made by this Foundation, including Holiday Meals to the Needy, two SHS scholarships, our Stallion Stable Closet, meant to level the playing field for our students by supplying them with life necessities, and the Foundation's generous gift of transportation to and from Atlanta and Chicago for our ten qualifiers to the National History Bee. We feel fortunate to have such a caring and generous alumnus of our school district.
