2016 Award Presentations

Past Years Grant Winners

Named in memory of Dr. Russell Thiems, Superintendent of District 205 from 1983 to 1992.  Dr. Thiems recognized the need to provide opportunities for students beyond what was possible through tax revenues.  He then recruited community members to serve on the Board of Directors, and together they established the Elmhurst District 205 Foundation.
