Ithaca High School Senior Class Gifts - Class of 2011
Working with the student leadership and parents of the graduating classes at Ithaca High School, IPEI began in 2004 to encourage and administer a new tradition of Senior Class Gift Funds. Graduating students with their families have a vehicle to show their gratitude and to act philanthropically while leaving a legacy at IHS.
As a lasting tribute to their alma mater, the Class of 2004 created an endowed fund to promote and recognize excellent teaching at IHS. Each year an outstanding new teacher will be honored who exemplifies enthusiasm and creativity in teaching. Current seniors select the recipient through a ballot.
The Class of 2005 followed their example and began an endowment to support extracurricular life at IHS by funding an award to a student organization voted upon by the current seniors. It recognizes the Ithaca High club that makes a positive impact on student life.
