The Martha Spoor Young Writers Fund was established in 2008 with the Alamo Heights School Foundation in honor of Martha Spoor, a lifelong resident of San Antonio, a 1987 graduate of Alamo Heights High School and English teacher at the Alamo Heights Junior School. Martha’s greatest passion was teaching. For almost fourteen years, she fulfilled her dream as an English teacher at Alamo Heights Junior School.
The Martha Spoor Young Writers fund is used to enhance the writing program at AHJS through a special summer writing workshop. The first workshop was held in July 2010 with endowed funds from The Martha Spoor Young Writers Fund facilitated by AHSF.
