Sharyland ISD Education Foundation Grants

SA3 Grant 2023

The latest film by Martin Scorsese will be released October 2023. Based on the nonfiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, the movie traces the trajectory/tragedy of the real-life Osage murders. The murders were known as the Reign of Terror during the 1910s–1930s. The Great Depression, oil discovery, Native American racial injustice, and corrupt law enforcement will engage scholars in US History Dual Enrollment classes. Teacher, librarian, and students will read the book, engage in discussions, connect with virtual Osage tribal members, and take a field trip to the movie.

Heart Start Save a Life

Were you watching the Buffalo Bills play the Cincinnati Bengals last year when Bills Safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest? "According to the most recent data from the American Heart Association, about 90% of the 350,000 people who experience a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital each year will not survive.”  CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival. Hamlin, 25, is raising awareness for CPR and AED education and training. With the support of the Sharyland ISD Education Foundation, we can save lives in our community. Now the Penny Payte McLeaish LRC will have a Portable AED unit that may save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest.
