The online face of the Central Cambria Education Foundation has received a drastic makeover.
CCEF acts as the focal point for Central Cambria School District fundraising, reaching out to local organizations and bolstering involvement from Red Devil alumni in future endeavors.
After almost a year incubating, its new site launched last week – CCEducationFoundation.org – adding, aside from modern HTML and Flash elements, an array of new functionality including social media integration and online alumni registry.
Graduates also can connect with the foundation on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter at the @ccef_reddevils handle. Links to the organization’s social media front soon will be added to the website.
CCEF also worked closely with Learning Lamp LLC and McKool Images of Johnstown to create a new logo.
For the supplementary education nonprofit, the transition is a step toward keeping alumni engaged and actively supporting their alma mater.
Foundation Coordinator Tracey Heeney, who graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s in management information systems, manages each social media account. She recently spent time as a Web programmer at Pitt-Johnstown and coordinated events at other nonprofit organizations.
“It’s very important because it allows them to know what’s going on in the school district and what programs we’re offering to students; if they want to donate to a program that they feel strongly about or receive email updates on anything that’s going on,” Heeney said.
May 18 will hear the starting gun at the sixth annual Little Devil Triathlon, open to children ages 6 to 14.
On June 28, the Red Devil Classic Golf Tournament tees off at Ebensburg Country Club.
And on July 20, the Jackson Heritage 5K walk/run will be held during the township’s annual Heritage Festival.
All the events help keep CCEF – and the outside education programs it sustains – funded.
Registration forms can be downloaded directly from its new site.
