Carol J. Buckley Scholarship for Students in the Arts
Carol J. Buckley was a member of the I.H.S. Class of 1983 who died of Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2005. The fund was established by her family and friends to provide scholarship assistance to talented students pursuing advanced study in the arts, and to support educational programs in the arts in the ICSD.

Additional grants will be made to support arts activities in our schools. The Buckley Fund supported the Elementary Choral Festival in 2008, a joint concert of all fifth graders who will attend DeWitt Middle School together. Through the festival, students work together on music that they perform together, and they get to know their future middle school classmates and music teachers. In addition, a gift was made to the Ithaca High drama club to support workshops for students in technical and other aspects of theater.
