​​Supporting Education for our Future

     It is with a great sense of sorrow and loss that we pay tribute to a wonderful benefactor to the Somers Education Foundation.  S. Prestley Blake recently passed away at the age of 106.  Pres and his wife Helen have donated funding on a number of occasions to our foundation for many years, and in total have provided financial assistance in excess of $225,000, resulting in named fund, the “S. Prestley and Helen Blake Fund.”  Examples of the grants that were able to be funded through their named fund include:  Mathematics Software Program for disabled students (SES), Rachel's Challenge Program (MBA) and Makerspace Program (SHS).
     We will be forever grateful for Pres and Helen’s generosity, and wish the best for Helen and her family during this very difficult time.
