The Corpus Christi Education Foundation is hosting the annual State of the District, the
single, largest annual fundraising event benefiting the Corpus Christi Independent School
District (CCISD), on October 22, 2015, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the American Bank Center.
CCISD students will greet, serve and perform for attendees, while the Hearts & Minds
Showcase will feature exhibits by students and educators from more than 25 campuses in the
district. Keynote Speaker Dr. Roland Hernandez, Superintendent of Schools, will highlight progress
and advancements in the district, student achievements and successes, and outline future
plans toward becoming a world class school system.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Corpus Christi Education Foundation (CCEF), which
serves and supports CCISD and its students and educators through financial contributions
and volunteer service. Among other efforts supported, event proceeds fund annual “Grants for
World Class Schools” awarded to provide students with innovative programming in the
classroom, including real-world, hands-on or unique educational experiences that would not
otherwise be funded through the district.
Sponsorships are available and tables can be purchased for $500 each. Individual tickets are
available for $50 each and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information about sponsorships or tickets, please click here or call (361) 695-7412.
