The George H. Slick Endowment was created to honor Dr. George H. Slick, Superintendent of the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District from 1978 to 1996. A gifted, dedicated educator and administrator, Dr. Slick helped all those concerned with our schools to remember that they should always strive to act in the best interests of the Districts’ young people. He asserted firmly with words and actions that our treasured children are both our special responsibility and our nation’s future.
Although Dr. Slick was keenly interested in all aspects of school life, both curricular and extracurricular, he was always particularly interested in the arts, both visual and performing. This endowment, however, is not established with the intentions of championing one part of the School Districts’ curricular life over all others. Rather, these awards aim to recognize the importance of the art and artists and the integral part they play in the lives of our students.
The Endowment supports our Fellowship and Grant SHHS students in many ways including financial help in order for them to grow as artists. It is maintained through generous donations from members of the Wallingford-Swarthmore community. If you are able to make a donation to the George H. Slick Endowment, please send your contribution to: (check payable to “The George H. Slick Endowment”)
