ACSC Receives Lilly Endowment Counseling Grant
Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) has received a planning grant of $47,558 under Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students. The aim of the Counseling Initiative is to increase significantly the number of K-12 students in Indiana who are emotionally healthy to realize academic success, graduate from high school, obtain valuable postsecondary credentials, certifications and degrees necessary for meaningful employment. These students will also be prepared to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.
The K-12 Avon school counselors will collaborate with local and regional organizations, such as Fleck Education, to assess the current counseling program and the social and emotional needs of all Avon students. ACSC is one of 284 Indiana public school corporations and charter schools in Indiana receiving planning grants through the initiative.
“There is a growing need for us to assist our students in understanding their social and emotional schema. This grant encourages the local discussion of the current resources and programs we have and allows us to explore the wealth of knowledge we have in Hendricks County and beyond,” stated Sarah Altman, school counselor at Sycamore Elementary and co-chair of the ACSC committee for this grant. “We want our students to feel connected to our staff and schools, and we know we can play a role in helping our students feel safe at school. We are excited to begin this thorough investigation of our students’ needs and how we can advocate for helping them be successful in their lives,” she continued.
Lilly Endowment Inc. is an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation created in 1937 by three members of the Lilly family - J.K. Lilly Sr. and sons J.K. Jr. and Eli - through gifts of stock in their pharmaceutical business, Eli Lilly & Company. The Endowment is primarily committed to the causes of community development, education and religion and has a special commitment to its hometown, Indianapolis, and its home state, Indiana.
