ST. CLOUD - Retired educators from the St. Cloud area school district have established a retired educators legacy fund with the local education and activities foundation (LEAF).

The fund will award grants to local district academics, activities, arts and athletic programs. As of January 15th, 105 retired educators have donated $26,676 over the past four years to create this legacy fund.
