The Yellow Jacket Foundation

The Three Rivers Educational Campus opened in 2013 and became the new home for Taylor High School, Taylor Middle School, and Three Rivers Elementary School. The money to build this project came from our School Bond for the Miami Township community. The School Bond only covered the cost of the school buildings, leaving us the need to separately fund all athletic facilities. The Soccer, Football, Softball Field, and Track fields, new concessions, and public restrooms are all completed. Revenue for these projects came from selling school properties and large donations. 


How to Help

The Yellow Jackets Foundation was formed in 2014 as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The Foundation will generate funds for the remaining buildings and future maintenance for all athletic facilities as they age. To support the foundation, please email
