Connie Osborn Deits Science Enrichment Fund
providing funding for innovative science instruction 2008-2016
The Connie Osborn Deits Science Enrichment Fund was established in 2008 by the Deits family to increase the understanding and appreciation of science by Okemos students. Connie and her husband, Tom, worked on science outreach for many years both inside and outside the district. While their son Robin attended Okemos Public Schools, they were instrumental in their involvement with the district's parent group, Supporters of Okemos Science. This fund was used for science enrichment and activities at all levels of the district and served to honor the memory of Connie's strong commitment to science education.
