GLCS FOUNDATION SPARK SERIES
The Spark Series is one of the many ways the Foundation has been able to successfully reach out and touch the lives of our students, teachers, and community members. It is an initiative that is designed to identify influential speakers, dynamic programs, and inspirational stories, and share them within our community. The goal of the Spark Series is to inspire students, enhance the classroom experience, and broaden the perspective of our community.
Some of the wonderful events that have been facilitated by the Spark Series include the Science and Engineering Festival featuring the Mind Trekkers Roadshow, the Wall that Heals which included a traveling Vietnam Wall Memorial, and the presentation of “Our Water, Our World” by marine explorer, filmmaker, and environmental advocate Jean-Michel Cousteau. In addition, the Sparks Series has also featured artists, actors, storytellers, and authors such as John Grogan (Marley and Me) and Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea).
This year the Spark Series is implementing a community wide well-being program that will focus on nutrition, emotional health, and physical activity. The program will kick off in January with the world's only rock and roll show about nutrition, Jump with Jill; and continue throughout the school year with many programs, speakers, and events designed to educate, inspire, and enrich our community. Look for the upcoming #GLWELL program and help the GLCS Foundation create a Spark!

GLCS FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS
The Gull Lake Community Schools Foundation offers a heartfelt thanks to all the generous members of our community who support our scholarship program.
In the last 10 years, we have awarded over $950,000 in scholarships for over 370 scholarships to Gull Lake High School, Gull Lake Middle School, and Gull Lake Gateway Academy students!
Each individual scholarship represents the vision and generosity of an individual, family, organization, or business. Some of the scholarships are memorials to a member of our community, some honor a respected teacher, some encourage a field of study, and some represent a commitment to volunteering.
Students attend trade schools, community colleges, and universities with the support of the Gull Lake Community Schools Foundation scholarships.
Descriptions of our scholarships are posted on our scholarship page.
Mari Draeger, Scholarship Chairperson, Gull Lake Community Schools Foundation Trustee
