Why Should You Give to La Follette High School?
La Follette High School continues to educate and challenge its students to prepare them for the journeys that lie ahead of them. But not everything can be done with the budget received from state and local sources. No matter the size or designation of your gift, it will be used effectively and in a timely manner. Already La Follette has used gifts that have made a positive impact on its students and faculty.
“I recognize that the education and support I received as a student needs to be paid forward, now it is my turn to ensure that today's students have as much of an opportunity to learn, compete, and thrive as I did.” – Mark Mueller, Class of 1974
"My alumni gifts to La Follette are a reflection of my positive high school experiences; and, knowing the potential for good, placing trust in those students who follow our steps." - Nathan Brown, Class of 2002
