Lewisville ISD Education Foundation (LEF), an organization best known for granting awards to others, received an award of its own Tuesday.
At the annual Unity in Communities Luncheon, a collaborative effort of the Lewisville and Flower Mound Chambers of Commerce and the Highland Village Business Association, sponsored by Independent Bank, LEF was named the 2014 Non-Profit of the Year.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to accept this award,” LEF Executive Director Connie Pelphrey said. “In a room full of outstanding non-profit organizations, to be singled out is a testament to the great work of those who founded LEF 25 years ago – work that is maintained by the board members, volunteers, donors and staff we have today.”
LEF, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, exists to provide teacher grants and student scholarships to educators and students in Lewisville ISD (LISD).
In its 25-year history, LEF has awarded more than $1 million in teacher grants, and will cross the $3 million mark in total awards when grants are made this fall.
