CSU-Global Sponsors the Aurora Public Schools Foundation Annual Gala
On Sept. 22, in celebration of its 30th year, the Aurora Public Schools Foundation hosted its annual gala at the Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, Colorado. The APS Foundation was originally established to collect school supplies and donations from the community. Since inception, the Foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships, facilitated district to access millions in philanthropic support, and now offers student support with College and Career Centers, dedicated to ensuring that all students have access to the resources and guidance needed to plan for a successful future after high school.
“We are gratified to play a part in driving innovation and excellence for the students of Aurora Public Schools,” said Board Chair Derek Rushing. “We are thankful that CSU-Global is continuing to demonstrate one of its core values of collaboration by being a strong partner for our Foundation and school district though its title sponsorship of this event.”
"We are proud to partner with the Aurora Public Schools Foundation in support of their mission of providing students with the tools they need to pursue their goals after graduation," said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president and CEO of CSU-Global. “The work of the Foundation is key in our collective commitment to helping the citizens and the community flourish now, and into the future.”
