Larry Acterman Public Education Fund
Having taught for 33 years in the Long Beach Unified School District, Larry Acterman is remembered as a dedicated social studies teacher and mentor. A tireless advocate for public education, he championed improvements in the public school system at the local, regional and national levels. To honor their father’s lifelong commitment to public education, his children Steve Acterman and Amy (Acterman) Tenderich established the Larry Acterman Public Education Award (LAPEA) as a permanently-endowed scholarship fund at the Long Beach Community Foundation, with the goal of encouraging and supporting students interested in pursuing a career as a California public school teacher.
This Fund is a component fund at the Long Beach Community Foundation established by an individual. Unless you choose to make your gift anonymous, details of your contribution (including your name, contact information, and amount of gift) will be shared with the Fund contacts, who could include the individual who created the Fund and/or the nonprofit beneficiary.
