North Spencer School Endowment

With the economy and the state of the education system, Superintendent Dan Scherry decided that the North Spencer School Corporation needed to generate some revenue in order to counteract possible cuts. After seeing the success of the Library Endowment Fund, Mr. Scherry and the Board thought that the best option was an endowment. The funds from this endowment would go towards any program that isn’t mandated by the state, meaning electives, fine arts, sports, and other clubs. Scherry says, “We want something in place to save these classes and sports.” 
The fund is very recent. Events like raffles and general fundraising have occurred to help boost the fund. Groups like the Blue Ribbon Task Force, Saving Tomorrow Today, and Spikes Baseball have all played a direct role helping with these events and getting the fund up and running. Mr. Scherry hopes the funds generated through these events and direct donations will keep the extra-curricular activities in North Spencer going for a long time, no matter how much the education system changes.

“I believe in Spencer County!” That’s what Annie Oxley proclaims when she is asked about Spencer County. Though Annie was not born in Spencer County she knows the area well having been apart of MANY boards, committees, and groups throughout her 37 year stay in Spencer County. But she does not consider any of her rolls within the county her greatest achievement; that is having been raised by great parents, marrying a wonderful person, Rob, being a Mom to two great children, Jodi and Brian, (and a mother-in-law to two wonderful people, Tim and Stephanie), and being a grandparent to four beautiful little kids, Brayden, Dalton, Melanie and Adler. 
Serving on many boards that involved her directly in North Spencer School affairs, Annie recognized a growing concern. Funding for school libraries was being cut by the state and Annie could not let that the lack of money hinder the usefulness of the school libraries, a facet students needed to achieve the best education they possible can.
With the help of the Spencer County Community Foundation, Annie established the North Spencer County School Corporations Library Endowment. This fund’s earning would go directly to all the school libraries in North Spencer to keep all the facilities supplied with the educational reading material students need for success in school. Annie strongly believes that reading material is vital to everyone and that it may open the world up to students.
