“If you wait until
you can do everything for everybody, instead of
something for somebody, you’ll end up not doing
nothing for nobody.”
Greetings from the Cut Bank Education
Foundation and Alumni Association:
It was in December 1995 that the first board
meeting was held for this organization. A very
dedicated group of community members and school
officials led by the vision of Superintendent
Dennis Roseleip came together to find an
alternative source of income for the Cut Bank
Public Schools. The tax base had eroded and
there just were not the tax monies available to
help develop, foster and encourage excellence in
education that the Cut Bank Public Schools had
been known for throughout the years. The
establishment of the Cut Bank Education
Foundation and Alumni Association (CBEFAA) has
provided the mechanism through which this can
and has been accomplished.
The CBEFAA has focused on three main areas
through which to accomplish this goal. The
“Legacy of Learning” Endowment Fund provides for
long term funding and through the earnings of
this fund, several large scale projects have
been funded. Through the “Innovative Classroom
Mini-Grant” program, teachers and administrators
can bring in special presentations for the
students, expand offerings with new equipment or
even assist our students who are selected to
attend national gatherings.
The most public project we administer is our
scholarship program. Each year we
provide/administer scholarships for our
graduating seniors and alumni students. Most of
these scholarships have been set up by families
in memory of a loved one or through bequests.
As the Executive Director of the CBEFAA since
1999, I have been privileged to see first-hand
the difference this organization has made not
only within the Cut bank Public School District,
but in the Cut Bank community as a whole. None
of our efforts would be possible if it were not
for the tremendous support we have received from
our amazingly loyal alumni and their families.
It has been an honor to serve this organization
for the past 15 years and have all four of my
children become Cut Bank High School alums. My
husband and I are moving to South Carolina, but
the CBEFAA will be in the very capable hands of
the Board of Directors and the new Executive
Director, Nicole Kulstad Altenburg ’85.
Next year will be the twentieth year of the
CBEFAA and the celebration will “Kick-Off” with
another All-Class Reunion to be held 23-25 July.
Once the details are in place, they will be
posted on our website –
www.cutbankalumni.com or you can
contact Nicole directly.
Thank you so much for your tremendous support
over the past several years and please know that
none of this is possible without your generous
Outgoing Executive Director
