Cindy Nelson Education Fund


The Whitefish Bay Public Education Foundation, Inc. administers the Cindy Nelson Education Fund, which is a scholarship program for teachers.  The Fund was created through the generous contributions of family, friends and colleagues of Cindy Nelson, Whitefish Bay community members, and Foundation funds.

Cindy Nelson taught in Whitefish Bay public schools from 1975 until she unexpectedly passed away in March of 2004.  During her years of service, she spent time at all four school buildings teaching both first and second grade as well as serving as a speech pathologist. Her career was marked by dedication to excellence and a deep devotion to the education and development of her students.  She served on the Foundation and filled the roll of secretary for part of that time.

The Cindy Nelson Education Fund scholarships are available to Whitefish Bay public school teachers and other professionals in an amount up to $599 to pay for tuition or fees for educational courses, workshops, seminars or programs that will enhance the applicant’s ability to educate students in the Whitefish Bay public schools. Approval is within the discretion of the Foundation.
