More than 380 friends and supporters of Springer School and Center gathered at Music Hall on May 2 for A Springer Celebration! 2019, Springer-opoly.
The guest speaker at the fundraising event was Springer alumnus Michael Schulte, whose family company Late for the Sky custom-designed a Springer-opoly game for the school.
Schulte described for guests the difficulties he encountered with reading in elementary school, as a student with dyslexia. He credited his Springer education with his success in college. “Without the strategies for reading and comprehension that I attained while at Springer,” he said, “I would not have successfully completed the countless essays, presentations and exams that were required to graduate.”
Chairing the event was Springer alumnus and Trustee Peter Frey, and Springer parent Jenni Ward served as Auction Chair. The evening was emceed by FOX19 Now Sports Director Joe Danneman, who also presided over a 10-item live auction.
The event raised $195,000 that will be used for financial aid and school and outreach programs.
