Unlocking Potential A Scholarship Soiree

Unlocking Potential

At Magnolia Speech School, the health and well-being of our students, teachers, families, and community members are of utmost importance.  Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Unlocking Potential | A Scholarship Soirée rescheduled for Friday, June 12, 2020.
Because of your support, Unlocking Potential raised nearly $40,000 prior to our event date.  Our fundraising events help Magnolia Speech School provide $1 million (annually) in financial aid to ensure every child receives financial support for much-needed services. Thank you to our sponsors, silent auction donors, and supporters for helping MSS families during this crisis.

Although the soiree is canceled, we are pleased to announce that Magnolia Speech School will host an online silent auction in conjunction with our annual “homecoming” – Jubilee Celebration – during our fall semester.  We have collected $15,956 silent auction donations for the soiree and believe that the Jubilee Celebration will provide an ideal platform to continue to raise scholarship funds for our students. We wish you and your family continued health and safety and appreciate your understanding and support as we move forward with our mission to serve students with communication challenges.
