Dear Friends and Supporters, What an amazing 2012/2013 school year we have had! This is the very first edition of our e-newsletter to provide an insight into the accomplishments attained by the SEA Program of the Emily Shane Foundation. We couldn’t have done it without those who have supported our mission. This Foundation was created to honor the memory of Emily Rose Shane, who was tragically murdered at the age of 13. The Emily Shane Foundation has two main areas of focus: a "Pass it Forward" campaign to encourage performing good deeds for others, and the SEA Program, which provides one on one mentoring for struggling, mainstreamed middle school students who risk failure and are unable to otherwise afford any type of outside support.
