The Harvey E. Najim Family Foundation has awarded a $75,000 grant to The Winston School San Antonio to benefit low income students through its 2013-2014 Tuition Assistance Program. These funds will help qualifying students in grades K-12 to receive an excellent education.
Last school year, the Najim Foundation helped 19 WSSA students and their families. This grant is more than a dollar amount for these families. It is an answered prayer to years of struggle and unanswered questions. These parents now see their children enjoying school and improving their skills in reading, writing and socializing.
WSSA is thankful for this recent grant as it prepares for school to start on August 19. Mr. Najim has been a loyal supporter and friend to WSSA for six years.
