Sarah Klein, 2016 Tuition Expedition grand prize winner, was the recipient of the ticket issued to Clifford H. Smart Middle School and is planning to use her winnings to offset future college expenses for her son and daughter.
“I am honored and proud to be part of such an amazing school community. Thank you so much to the Foundation for all that you do for our schools, and for our family!” stated Sarah Klein. “The Foundation’s commitment to providing educational opportunities for the Walled Lake District is to be commended and is deeply appreciated.”
The Tuition Expedition provides the grand prize winner the option of electing 50% of the raffle’s ticket sales in the form of scholarship funds for postsecondary education or to elect a 40% lump sum payment.
Funds raised by the Tuition Expedition raffle will be channeled into the areas of technology, literacy, leadership and community for Walled Lake District’s K-12 students through the Foundation for Excellence annual grant program.
