New Fund Being Set Up to Benefit North Judson-San Pierre Students

Making sure North Judson-San Pierre students have access to the best educational opportunities possible is the goal of a new fund being set up at the Starke County Community Foundation.

Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin told the school board last week that the Verhagen family is establishing a new fund that they call “Our Kids Excel.”

“What they want to do is they want to help North Judson-San Pierre students,” Zupin explained. “What is it that our kids need? What is it that would be enrichment that our students could use? When the state keeps cutting and cutting, what can we use? So we’ve had some good conversations, and we have some good ideas.”

Zupin said more information will be shared during the June school board meeting.
