Tarkington Student Foundation

About Us:

The Tarkington Student Foundation, Inc. (TSF), a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) corporation founded in 2007, provides scholarship funds to all Tarkington graduates pursuing education beyond high school. The Foundation sponsors the Tarkington Round-Up, held the first Saturday in October each year. It showcases student and community performances and includes games, door prizes, a costume contest, and more. 

TSF is most appreciative of The M Club of Tarkington, a group of its staunchest supporters. The M Club was founded in 2015 by Tom Johnson and several other graduates who wanted to give back to a school district important in their lives by supporting today’s graduates in pursuing their dreams. Held on the first Saturday in April annually, the M Club’s Annual Crawfish Boil is a major community event and fundraiser for TSF.

The Foundation extends its sincerest appreciation to our donors and supporters who contribute each year to support our graduates.
