CMC Education Foundation is participating in The Big Payback!

The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 3, and the CMC Education Foundation is excited to take part in this monumental event for the third time.

The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day that celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits.

Kicking off at midnight on Wednesday, May 3, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations, like the CMC Education Foundation, raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to pressing needs in our community.

Gifts made to participating organizations during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses throughout the day.

Since its inception in 2014, Middle Tennessee’s annual day of giving has raised more than $6.75 million for nearly 800 area nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions.

We hope you’ll support the CMC Education Foundation and our mission to promote student achievement on Wednesday, May 3 during The Big Payback.

28th Annual Academic Awards banquet honors 239 students

The CMC Education Foundation and CMCSS will hosted the 28th year of student academic award recognition on the night of March 10, 2017. This year, 239 students were honored at the event for maintaining a 93 grade average with no grade lower than 85 in any one subject for three consecutive years. Additionally, over 961 students will receive awards for the first or second year at ceremonies held in their schools in the coming weeks.

The Academic Awards Banquet began as an initiative of Dr. Charles Lindsey, former CMCSS Director of Schools in 1989. Later, the Education Foundation took over the funding of the banquet.
