2019 Scholarship Winners

ISVA Community Service Scholarship Winners

The most exciting time of the year for the Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) is when we award $1000 scholarships to deserving graduating seniors. One essential purpose of the ISVA, is to raise funds to honor those students who have demonstrated an immense dedication to community service and citizenship.

For 2019, we received many incredible applications and were reminded of the intelligence, persistence, and kindness our students possess. The scholarship committee, like most years, had a difficult time selecting our winners. ISVA congratulates Abby Inbusch, Bernadette Pavlich, Alex Alley, and Matthew Kaiser. 

Abigail (Abby) Inbusch, from The John Cooper School, is a two-term South Montgomery County YMCA Board Member who raised a tremendous amount of money to help less fortunate kids and families in our community. She intends to major in Business & Economics at Southern Methodist University and eventually develop strategies to prevent and manage negative effects on the economy.

Bernadette Pavlich, from The Woodlands High School, has befriended and cared for the sick and elderly at the Regent Care Nursing Home since she was a small child. She also spent time in our community helping at food banks, teaching children and assisting in a non-profit business.  To continue her love of helping people and the community, she intends to major in Occupational Therapy at Texas Woman’s University.

Alexander (Alex) Alley, from The Woodlands High School, is an active Eagle Scout and has managed service projects and volunteered wherever there was need. From helping numerous families after Hurricane Harvey to improving the lives of children at the Interfaith Daycare, Alex has made his community a better place.  He intends to major in Marketing at Texas A&M University and continue serving the world around him. 

Matthew Kaiser, from The Woodlands College Park High School, is an active Eagle Scout, a National Charity Roundtable (NCR) Volunteer and a Congressional Award Silver Medal Recipient. The Salvation Army, Interfaith, Robotics Team, Chamber of Commerce and Soil Moisture Active Passive program have all benefited from Matthew’s service. Once completing his degree in Accounting or Finance from Texas A&M University, Matthew intends to continue volunteering his time in the community .

ISVA would like to thank all the applicants and their parents for being such an integral part of what makes Indian Springs so special. 

Holiday Lighting Winners

Indian Springs Village Association 2018 Holiday Lighting Winners

This year’s judges focused on homes and areas that have not had the opportunity to win in prior years and had displayed a significant amount of effort and commitment that was involved in this year’s displays. 

This year’s Best House is 14 Golden Place, in Idlewood.  This home which is owned and decorated by Dan and Lori Parr, has over 60 separate Christmas trees on display in what Dan described as “Santa’s Christmas tree forest”. Dan and Lori said their display required over 50 hours to assemble and several storage units.

This year’s Best Neighborhood was given to the cul-de-sac on Lansend.  This was a new display which involved choregraphing the lights at three houses and the cul-de-sac.  Joe & Kimberly White, who live at 34 Lansend, started developing the lighting plans in August, with his neighbors Brian Ivey and Rob Haberkamp.

Elementary Schools Donation 2020

Dear Indian Springs Village Association Board,

On behalf of Glen Loch Elementary PTO, thank you so much for your generous donation to our school. We will use this money to provide funds for our librarian to purchase new books and resources for our students. For some of our students, the school library is their only regular access point for reading material and our collection is in great need of updating.  As a Title I school, raising funds is a challenge and having support from our community really means a lot.  

Thank you for making us a priority and for dedicating your resources to our campus. 

Sincerely,

Sarah Pounders

Glen Loch Elementary PTO President

 

 

Elementary School Donations

The Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) is proud to support our outstanding public schools.  The funds raised through ISVA events, such as the Taste of the Village in October, are used for scholarships to our Indian Springs high school seniors and donations to our neighborhood schools. 

A $500 donation was made to Glen Loch Elementary for the accelerated reading program. Based on several reports on these programs, students have exhibited improved vocabulary and increased reading comprehension on a variety of books. An additional $500 donation was made to Galatas Elementary School, who has entered its second year as a CISD Literacy Cohort Campus, for the enhancement of their classroom libraries. Galatas Principal Denae Wilker writes, “Through community donations of gently used books we have made great strides, but we are still in need of additional titles to fill in the gaps.” With the donation from ISVA, those gaps are greatly diminished.
