Local Orthodontists announce decade-long commitment to LPS Education Foundation

The LPS Education Foundation’s Competitive Edge college savings program would not exist without the generous support from Livonia Public Schools employees, PTAs, PTSAs, citizens and corporate donors such as Drs. Shaw and Jane Orthodontics in Livonia.

Dr. Randall Shaw and Dr. Nicole Jane, Livonia Orthodontists, http://www.TheBigSmile.com, recently announced that their orthodontic practice, located on Seven Mile Road, west of Farmington Road, is continuing its long-term support of the LPS Education Foundation with a $1,000 donation, as part of a 10-year, $10,000 commitment to the non-profit organization that benefits Livonia Public Schools students, staff and families.

“It is this kind of support that makes a significant impact on our premiere program, the Competitive Edge college savings program, which now funds college savings accounts for more than 1,700 LPS students,” said LPS Education Foundation President Diane Policelli.

The unique Competitive Edge program offers a 529 educational trust account for families of kindergarten students who enroll in the program. The LPS Education Foundation contributes $100 on behalf of each student. Additional annual contributions are made by the Foundation as the budgets allow.

Dr. Shaw and Dr. Jane support the idea of giving local families a “competitive edge” in college savings planning and they truly value the importance of obtaining a college education – both having completed eight years of college in obtaining their bachelor’s and dental degrees, in addition to 2-3 years of additional orthodontic specialty education.

“It means a lot to us, to have the support of such fine business and community members like Dr. Shaw and Dr. Jane,” said Policelli. “Their ongoing commitment is truly valued and we are happy to call them our partners in the Competitive Edge program.”
