Please Participate CNF "Year End" Fundraising Drive.
Partners for Excellence is our year-end scholarship fundraising drive initiative. The CNF (Carlin Nalley Foundation) created in 2005, celebrates that experience by providing scholarships to Lisle students and serving as the school’s alumni association. Thanks to you the CNF has awarded over $180,000 in scholarships to deserving Lisle Senior High School Seniors. Three years ago we set a goal of awarding $18,000 in scholarships in 2019. With your support, we will exceed that goal, and plan to give $20,000 in awards to Lisle students next year.
This year's Partners for Excellence campaign has a goal to collect $20,000. In order to continue inspiring excellence in these academic programs and to help additional deserving Lisle students achieve educational goals beyond high school, we are asking you to consider partnering with the CNF by contributing a financial gift during our year-end drive.
Here is a message to you, the Lisle Alumni, from one of our exceptional scholarship winners."
CNF to Award $20,000 in Scholarships in 2019!
In 2019, the foundation will now provide $20,000 in scholarship awards to eight exceptional senior Lisle students who have achieved excellence across a range of academic, artistic, and athletic, and service activities during high school. This growth from $16,000 in 2018 has been fueled by the generous contributions and enthusiasm of you, the loyal alumni,
