In memory of former superintendent Tom Russell, who died Dec. 9, after a battle with COVID-19, the Futures Foundation is establishing a memorial scholarship fund to honor his 28-year career in Volusia County Schools. Russell, who was the principal of Flagler Palm Coast High School when he died, was a tireless supporter of the foundation and the students, teachers and staff in the district. The goal is for the scholarship fund to be perpetual.

To honor his legacy, donate to the James T. “Tom” Russell Memorial Scholarship Fund through Futures Foundation for Volusia County Schools. Once established, scholarship applications will be accepted from seniors at any of the 10 Volusia County public high schools who will be pursuing teaching degrees. 

If you prefer to make your donation via a check, please make it payable to Futures Inc. and mail to:

Futures Foundation, 3750 Olson Drive, Daytona Beach, FL 32124. In the memo line, please note Russell scholarship.
