Great schools combine the power of public resources with innovation and flexibility fueled by private funds. In 2012, several members of the "Classic" Class of 1955 worked together with school administration and parent leaders to create the Myers Park High School Foundation. The Foundation strategically concentrates on these main areas:
- Comprehensive programming for 9th-12th grade at risk students to get them on track for graduation;
- Professional development for teachers;
- Scholarships for students or programs; and
- Campus improvements, in conjunction with CMS and the Mustang Club (athletic boosters).
Shannon Scholarship Fund Money donated by friends and family in memory of David Shannon (class of 2012) funds college scholarship for Myers Park students.
The Foundation will continue to encourage and support innovative efforts to make Myers Park a model of urban educational excellence.
