35 Years

35 Years of promoting educational achievement and excellence among students, faculty, staff and administrators in the Marietta City Schools MARIETTA SCHOOLS FOUNDATION 144 Polk Street Marietta, GA 30060 • 770-427-1012

MSF: 35 years

We are very pleased to present our very first news magazine from The Marietta Schools Foundation and The Alumni Society. And we are equally proud to publish this magazine on the 35th anniversary of the foundation! We’ve come a long way since 1983 when Superintendent Roy D. Nichols Jr. got together a group of citizens to form an endowment and raise money to benefit Marietta City Schools. One of the citizens involved was Neil Barfield who went on to become the Executive Director of the Foundation until 2014. The mission of the MSF has always been to promote education achievement and excellence among the students, faculty, and staff of MCS. Since its inception, and through Neil Barfield’s guidance, approximately $3.3 million has been used for everything from providing cab fares so parents can attend parent/teacher conferences, to perfect attendance awards for students, to paying out over $560,000 in scholarship money to over 200 students. In the early years of the MSF, the office was located at 1380 Wylie Drive in Marietta in what was then an antiques store and is now Milky’s Hair Salon. In 2003 the MSF finally got a home in the old Fire Station No. 3 at 144 Polk Street adjacent to the Marietta Middle School. Fire Station No. 3 was constructed in the summer of 1952 at a cost of $14,000, paid for out of a $30,000 bond issue, the remainder used to install a fire alarm system. When newer firetrucks became too large to squeeze into the fire-station, Marietta City Schools acquired the property as classroom and storage space for Marietta High School when it was located on Winn Street. Since that time, the Board of Education has leased out the building to the Foundation.

On August 19, 2007 the building was remodeled in the memory of Morgan & Ada McNeel and in memory of all the great teachers who have taught in Marietta for Generations.

MSF: 35 years


The Marietta Schools Foundation was incorporated in June 1983 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) for the purpose of promoting educational excellence and achievement among the students, faculty, staff, and administration of the Marietta City Schools.


THE MSF DOES NOT TAKE ANY FEES FROM CONTRIBUTIONS! No administrative fees, no handling fees, no service charges. Nothing! Since 1983 100% of each donation goes toward each contributor’s intended purpose.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors who feel the best way to fulfill our purpose is to recognize and reward outstanding students and employees. In addition, we respond to the needs of the classroom teacher in order to provide them with the necessary tools to make them as proficient as possible.




In 2017 the MSF paid out over $50,000 in scholarship money, $17,000 in student funding, and $20,000 toward funded projects at MCS.

The MSF has 43 different endowments that, in addition to providing scholarships, go towards such purposes as the Marietta Performance Arts Center, the MCS Band Association, boys and girls basketball, the Culinary Arts Program at MHS, funding for students in need, the Student Life Center, and many more.



Outstanding students are recognized and rewarded with SCHOLARSHIPS provided by the foundation through several scholarship funds that have been endowed specifically for this purpose.

TEACHERS OF THE YEAR, representing each school in the district, are recognized and rewarded with cash awards.

alumni updates Rosemary Pearson-Clarke Class of 2011 When I was asked to write about my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Botswana, I thought it would be a breeze; however, I find myself struggling to adequately summarize the past two years of my life. After graduating from Marietta High School in 2011, I completed my BS and MPH in Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia. I worked for a year in environmental health emergency management, during which time, I was accepted to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Botswana. My reasons for joining Peace Corps are many and complex, but I was drawn to the idea of getting to live, learn, and just be in another culture while doing public health work at the grassroots level. As a Civil Society Health Capacity Building Volunteer, my role is to provide organizational and programmatic support to two community-based non-profits that address some of the key drivers of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Botswana. My day-to-day varies wildly—from working side-byside with local staff to improve organizations’ financial management and strategic planning, to co-facilitating workshops for community leaders on gender-based violence and substance abuse, to co-leading youth clubs that use environmental topics to empower students with healthy communication and leadership skills. I will also be extending my service for a third year to support a non-profit that addresses food security issues through the implementation of conservation agriculture, permaculture, and agroforestry. However, these resume-like descriptions do not adequately capture my experience in Botswana. It has been the daily interactions with my Batswana friends and co-workers, the new perspective on life that I have gained, and the cultural exchanges I have been privileged to take part in that have been the most meaningful part of my time as a volunteer.

jessica Gamble Class of 2011

Jessica Gamble graduated Marietta High School in 2011. Jessica participated in the culinary program at MHS and went to culinary school directly after graduation. She is currently the Chef de Cuisine for KR Steakbar in Buckhead, a Kevin Rathbun restaurant. Three years ago she became the youngest and first female Chef de Cuisine for the entire company. She is in charge of managing the restaurant, creating the menu, and participating in charity events that benefit the community. She is greatly looking forward to continuing in the culinary industry and making an impact for future young chefs. The Marietta Schools Foundation now offers a new culinary arts scholarship to help support talented students like Jessica further their culinary education.

PRESERVING THE PAST The Marietta Schools Foundation is embarking on a preservation project to preserve, restore, and digitize our inventory of MHS Olympians going back to the very first published in 1917. Our goal is to digitally archive every Olympian so they are available to the public on our website. We maintain a complete set of all Olympians from 1917 to present in our Alumni House office on Polk Street. We also take donations of old copies of the Olympians too. Visitors are always welcome to drop by to view and explore the rich history of MHS.

SUPPORTING THE ARTS The Marietta Schools Foundation is a strong supporter of the Marietta Performance Arts Center. In July of 2018 we donated $25,000 to MPAC for the purchase of new microphones and audio mixer equipment. Such a donation could not have been possible without the support of generous MSF donors who established the MSF MPAC Endowment in Friday, Nov.16, 2018 at 7:30 pm July 2011 to promote and support this wonderful Marietta Performing Arts Center addition to the City of Marietta. Donors bought seats in honor of friends and family—their names engraved on a gold plaque attached to the back of their chosen seat. To date over 200 honorary seats have been donated to the MPAC Endowment. If you are a friend of the arts and would like to contribute your support to the MPAC Endowment through the purchase of a $500 seat in honor of a friend or family member, please contact Joe Kinstle at or at 770-427-1012.

Did you Know? WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROJECTS MSF FUNDS AND SUPPORTS? NEW TRADITIONS When Marietta Middle School started a new tradition for 8th graders to walk from MMS to symbolize their transition to 9th grade, MSF supported the event with t-shirts for students to commemorate the inaugural MMS Honor Walk.

BLUE DEVIL FAN FEST Marietta Schools Foundation sponsored the first of a new pregame tradtion at Northcutt. Blue Devil Fan Fest is designed to the make the game experience more family friendly with activities for kids including inflatables, face painting, and food. The first event was a big success with lots of fun for kids.

Healthcare needs MHS Healthcare Science teachers/Athletic Trainers don’t merely provide support on the field. Jeff Hopp and his team provided the administration and coaches with CPR, AED, and Stop the Bleed training during pre-planning. It is a district wide effort to faciliate safer schools through focused training and new equipment. The Marietta Schools Foundation purchased new Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and Stop-The-Bleed kits for the high school.



You can use the sample copy on the right to add a general or designated bequest to the one of our 41 endowments, including the Alumni Society. Your estate planner can also provide you with an additional copy for your specific needs.

We are always humbled when we learn of a person leaving a bequest to the Alumni Society or the Marietta Schools Foundation in their will. Graduates of Marietta High School have traveled and lived widely in the world, but even after many years, Marietta City Schools still holds a special place in their hearts.

Bequests are just one way to make a planned gift.

Planned gifts provide you with the opportunity to create a lasting legacy and continue the mission of the Alumni Society and The Marietta Schools Foundation to avidly support the students, educators, and staff of Marietta City Schools. Bequests are just one way of making a planned gift. Gifts can be unrestricted or designated to a program or endowment that was close to a donor’s heart. Gifts can have an instant impact on the Foundation and the school system. In addition to the Alumni Society Endowment, the Marietta Schools Foundation has 40 other endowments that are designated toward scholarships, Mentoring for Leadership, the Student Life Center, the Marietta Performance Arts Center, the Marietta City Schools Band Association, to name just a few. (See the complete list of endowments below.) The more these endowments grow, the more they pay out to Marietta City Schools. It’s important to know that the Marietta Schools Foundation is very special in many ways, but foremost is that we do not charge fees or take away any money from gifts or contributions at all. No service fees. No transaction fees. No handling fees. Nothing. One hundred percent of all contributions go toward the donor’s intended purpose.

There are also many options for you to provide a planned gift. IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER The IRA charitable rollover allows taxpayers aged 70 1/2 or older to donate up to $100,000 from their individual retirement accounts (IRAs) directly to charitable nonprofits. The advantage is that the amount given to charity is not included in your income; it effectively gives you a tax deduction. This amount can also be put towards your annual required minimum distributions. LIFE INSURANCE POLICY You purchase a life insurance policy of any amount and name the Alumni Society or one of the other endowments as the beneficiary. Upon death, the organization will receive the full benefit of the policy. GIFTS OF STOCK OR SECURITIES Gifts of stock or securities can be made at any time to the Foundation. Transfers can be made directly into our brokerage account. Donating stock to a charitable organization allows you to avoid paying capital gains on that stock, plus the amount of the stock transfer will qualify for a charitable deduction. GIFTS OF REAL ESTATE You can choose to donate real estate to the Foundation. You receive the value of the land as a charitable contribution. The Marietta Schools Foundation is here to provide general information on planned gifts, but you will want to work directly with a certified financial planner or estate attorney for specific advice on your needs.

SUGGESTED WORDING FOR YOUR BEQUESTS TO THE MARIETTA SCHOOLS FOUNDATION A Bequest for General Purpose I give ($______) or (_____%) of my disposable estate to be used for the benefit of the (Choose One or More endowment(s) from the list below, at The Marietta Schools Foundation, Marietta, Georgia.)

A Contingent Bequest in the Event of Common Disaster Befalling the Entire Family: Stipulating that in the event of such circumstances, all or part of your estate is to be given to (specify the particular endowment) at The Marietta Schools Foundation, Marietta, Georgia.
