The high school is the Flagship for the Shippensburg Area School District, serving not only our students, but also our community.
The Shippensburg School Board has approved using resources from the district’s fund balance to make the “core” improvements. Fundraising efforts through The Greyhound Foundation would build upon the district's defined commitments.
What is The Greyhound Foundation's role in Flagship Proud?
The Greyhound Foundation serves as a fundraising conduit for those businesses and individuals who would like to assist in moving the project and the district forward by building upon the "core" improvements to which the district has already committed.
