Thanks to everyone who came out to run the Sandy Hook 5k today. We have been a part of this event from the start. Five years later, we still very much appreciate the support at events like this — it truly warms our hearts. #teamvickisoto #LoveRunsThrough

VSMF Scholarships!

This year we are offering four scholarships each for $5,026 to high school seniors wanting to become teachers. Two scholarships are awarded to students at Stratford’s local high schools. One is awarded to a senior across the country and now this year we are offering another scholarship to a student in Connecticut. We have also offered our previous recipients a chance at a renewable scholarship. We are committed to keeping Vicki’s legacy as teacher alive and this allows us to do exactly that. If you know of a high school senior who could benefit from this scholarship, please encourage them to fill out an application today! Deadline for applying is May 1, 2017.
