1955 Society

Home / 1955 Society

In 1955, the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation permitting a township to create a non-partisan system of school government. Because of this legislation, the Metropolitan District of Washington Township came into being on August 1, 1955. This legislative change from a trustee-based system to an elected school board was the first action in a long history of stakeholder-driven support of public education and setting a higher standard for educational excellence in Washington Township.

In the years that have followed, that stakeholder-driven support has come to mean millions of private dollars invested to advance the achievements of world-class public education. It is our primary mission to build on the legacy of those visionaries in 1955 and enrich the lives of our students with the best public education experience in the state. We do that, primarily, through our Annual Fund, which affords us the opportunity to award hundreds-of-thousands of dollars annually to our teachers, classrooms and schools. This giving society represents the most dedicated of those Annual Fund supporters.

We invite you to become a member of the Advancement Center’s most important giving society. It’s simple. All unrestricted gifts of at least $1,000 per year to the Annual Fund qualify you for membership, which includes:

  • Invitations to a donor appreciation reception, North Central Hall of Fame Reception and other special events
  • Website and Annual Report recognition
  • An 8×8 brick in the North Central High School Brick Plaza when you join
  • Gift Certificate to the North Central Spirit Shop
  • 1955 Society Notepad
  • A Washington Township Performing Arts pass

The easiest way for us to make the greatest impact — to fulfill the mission that was created in 1955 — is to continue investing in our Annual Fund. Please be a part of that legacy by joining the 1955 Society today. Contact Emily Kaiser, Executive Director of the Advancement Center, for more information.
