Nancy Simpson Above & Beyond Fund
After 25+ years of friendship, longtime Parkway parent and teacher Nancy Simpson has been honored with the creation of the Nancy Simpson Above & Beyond Fund. The fund will benefit the PAA Granting Dreams Program. This grant program helps offset the expense for Parkway School District K-12 students to attend and learn in educational experiences outside their regular curriculum. Teaching, learning, and helping students were more of Nancy's passions where she went above and beyond.
Nancy Simpson, mother of four Parkway graduates and 10+ year teacher at Carmen Trails, is known best for her loving spirit, passion for Parkway, and desire to make our community a better place. If you spent any time around Nancy, you know her love for Parkway comes from raising four children through Barretts Elementary, Parkway South Middle, and High School. It’s through her friends, former co-workers, and students that we all know the love and impact of Nancy. After a shocking cancer diagnosis and the ending battle, Nancy’s friends honored her where they spent many mornings walking and enjoying each other’s company - Queeny Park - with a 5K that raised over $6,000 to start the Above & Beyond Fund. It is our hope to continue Nancy's legacy of educating Parkway's students and expanding their world.
Please join us in continuing Nancy's passion for helping students by contributing to the Above and Beyond Fund.
