Today’s Contributing Chargers are Evan and Quan Tran. Last year as new parents to Shorecrest, Evan and Quan understood becoming Chargers would be a life changing experience, which led them to make an anonymous gift to Transform. At the time, they wanted their gift to represent why their family was giving instead of who was giving. A year later, they were left wondering, “How can we inspire others to support this campaign, too?”
Shorecrest parents Matt Frey and Patrick Lamb organize casual, low key Dad's Nights Out during the school year. This is open to fathers of Shorecrest students all grade levels. No need to RSVP, just show up and enjoy.

For more than 20 years, the Holiday Gift Drive has been Shorecrest’s signature service event. Through the Gift Drive, the Shorecrest community provides holiday gifts to 250 underserved children through the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay, which provides advocacy and support for abused, abandoned or neglected children. The Gift Drive runs December 2-13.
Shorecrest fifth graders spent a week integrating science, technology, engineering, arts and math during Drop Everything and STEAM Week. The week had students focusing on collaboration to solve science- and art-based challenges that mimic the structure and work of STEAM professionals in the real world.
Today’s Contributing Chargers are the Mantooth siblings. Beth Mantooth, Enrollment Management Administrative Assistant and former Experiential School Teacher, believes in helping her children find organizations where their own savings and belongings can make a real difference in the lives of others. By giving of themselves, they can experience the joy of helping others. And hopefully, that experience makes them lifelong givers. Brailee '29 and Rigsby '31 Mantooth chose to give to Transform so they could be a part of the completion of our new space so their specials teachers will have beautiful spaces in which to teach them.
