Committees

Most of the Foundation’s work will be completed via purpose-specific committees. Committees will be added as needed.
 
Current committees include
 
  • Owl Walk -  Chaired by Bill Lewis, this committee offers an opportunity for community members to honor individuals and families that are part of the rich history of the Bensalem Township School District. Members of the community are able to make individual or family purchases to see their name on a walkway at the front entrance of Bensalem High School.  Proceeds from the Owl Walk benefit our libraries throughout the school district.
