KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — In continuing their support of the Kosciusko County Grad Coach Program, The Pfleiderer Charitable Trust donated $1,000 to Gradway. Gradway is an organization designed to keep students in school and empower them to succeed as they work toward graduation.
The Pfleiderer Charitable Trust was established by Esther Pfleiderer to assist charitable organizations in Kosciusko County in improving the quality of life in the County. Esther was born and raised in Warsaw and taught math for 39 years in the Warsaw school system. She also was very active in the community serving on the boards of the Salvation Army, Warsaw Community Public Library, Kosciusko County Community Foundation, Kosciusko County Historical Society and the ministries of the First Presbyterian Church. In 1982 she was recognized as Warsaw’s Woman of the Year. Grant applications are available from the 1st Source Bank Personal Asset Management Group offices at 325 South Lake Street, Warsaw. The next deadline for grant applications is Sept. 30. For more information, contact John Elliott (574) 268-1207.
Gradway’s mission is to promote graduation, one relationship at a time. Their middle and high school programs serve four area school corporations: Tippecanoe Valley, Warsaw, Wawasee, and Whitko. Gradway is in its seventh year of operation and has served over 1600 students during that time. Gradway is a 501 C 3 public charity and is entirely funded by grants and individual or corporate donations.
