The Salem Education Foundation’s purpose is to expand access to higher education for students of the Salem Community Schools. SEF also partners with the Washington County Community Foundation to invest and manage scholarship funds. The Lion Legacy Program is a way to celebrate the successes of our former students and to encourage our current students to aim their sights high as they work toward their own academic achievements.
