Please help us raise $20,000 by May 26, 2015 to form the seed of the Frank Haltiwanger Verbum Sap Sat Scholarship Fund!
The Frank Haltiwanger Verbum Sap Sat Scholarship: In honor of his 11 years as HB principal, we are establishing the “Frank Haltiwanger Verbum Sap Sat Scholarship,” to be awarded to the one graduating student each year – beginning with the Class of 2015 – who most exemplifies the values of “Verbum Sap Sat” in their approach to their studies, their classmates and teachers, and life in general.
We cannot think of “Verbum Sap Sat” without thinking of Frank. At every opportunity, Frank invoked and explained “Verbum Sap Sat” to HB students, parents, and visitors. “Verbum Sap Sat” translates to “A Word to the Wise is Sufficient.” This motto captures the principles of HB Woodlawn: self-motivation, self-discipline, and fairness to all.
This scholarship is currently a SURPRISE. It will be presented to Frank at his retirement party on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 (at HB Woodlawn, from 7pm – 9pm). After that, we will enlist Frank’s input to further refine the purpose of this scholarship and the criteria for selecting recipients.
Please help us raise $20,000 by May 26, 2015 to form the seed of the Frank Haltiwanger Verbum Sap Sat Scholarship Fund! We will need this much in order to generate a self-renewing scholarship of an amount that will be meaningful to winners, given today’s tuition costs. You can donate online here by selecting a giving level at the right, or by selecting the GIVE button and entering your preferred donation amount.
You can also send a check written to HB Woodlawn, with “Frank’s Scholarship” in the memo line, to:
And please keep this as a surprise and do NOT tell Frank!!!
Frank is an exceptional educator and his leadership has made HB Woodlawn one of the finest public institutions in America. His understanding and nurturing of teens also has made HB a caring environment where students are free to explore their passions and develop new ones. Our children have been extremely fortunate to have gone to a school led by Frank, and he will be greatly missed
Frank, thank you for your leadership, spirit, energy and joy. You have made a difference in many, many folks lives and your legacy will live on - but we will miss you.
Thank you Frank!
Long live the HB way!
