Arlington Heights Elementary District 25 has started a new fund in honor of a former principal that will collect money to help children in need in the district.

The Bernice Gliege Angel Fund is named for Bernice Gliege, who started as a math consultant for the district in 1965 and became the first full-time principal of Berkley school when it separated from Rand School in 1972. Berkeley had 325 students at the time of the split, including a prekindergarten program for students with physical disabilities, according to a news release.

The district's news release said it was "very fitting that Bernice, as an advocate for the disabled, a pioneer for women in education, and a proponent of reaching new heights with a love for helping others through the world of education, should be the namesake of District 25's new 'Bernice Gliege's Angel Fund' for children in need."

Donations may be sent to District 25, Superintendent Office, 1200 S. Dunton Ave., Arlington Heights, IL 60005. Checks should be made payable to AHSD25 with "Angel Fund" on the memo line. All donations are tax deductible.
