The Cerutti Family Foundation Fund
The Cerutti Family Foundation was created to honor the memory of Tim and Mike Cerutti. The Cerutti Brothers loved teaching and bringing out the best in every student and teacher. The Foundation has a mission to have a positive impact on the lives of students through the funding of scholarships. By partnering with the PAA, the Foundation will be funding two initiatives for Parkway teachers and students.
- Continuing education scholarships for teachers. This initiative will ensure that teachers can continue their education and remain on the cutting edge of their field.
- Outdoor School scholarships for sixth grade students. Since 1970, the Parkway Outdoor School Program has been held at Camp Lakewood, located at the YMCA of the Ozarks near Potosi, Missouri. The program was originally referred to as the E-E-E (Environmental, Ecological, Experiential) program. Initially supported by federal funding, the program is now partially supported by district funds and partially by student fees. The Outdoor Program is a four-day experience designed for sixth-grade students. This fund will offer scholarships so that every student has the ability to take advantage of that remarkable program.
