Dear Friend,

Our community is fortunate to have great schools! But, do you know why Ooltewah and Harrison public schools are great? It is because we have committed principals, talented teachers, hard-working students and supportive parents. But, it’s also because we have the Ooltewah-Harrison Education Foundation working to ensure our schools have the resources they need to achieve excellence in education! Whether or not you have a school age child in our public school system, you directly benefit from the work does to support this great community. Great schools mean safe communities, prosperous business, thriving real estate and strong returns on investment. These reasons, coupled with ’s vision of helping our public schools become the top schools in Tennessee, are reasons to support today!
The Ooltewah Harrison Education Foundation (known as for District 9 & 10) is made up of volunteers only. No one on our board gets paid and therefore 100% goes back into our local public schools.

In the past few years has raised more than $150,000 to help our schools. We also give a Scholarship to our High School Community Leadership Recipient every year. Please go to to see all of our school Community Leadership award winners for 2020.
