Over 30 educators from across the county shared with us how they would use $600 to enhance their classrooms. The Grantmaking Committee faced an incredibly difficult task of choosing two recipients.
The 2018 Back to School Grants, supported by the Education Fund at HCCF, are:
Alan Green – Agricultural Science Teacher at Unionville-Sebewaing Area School District – the $600 grant will be used to purchase woodworking equipment to continue to provide students with hands-on learning opportunities and life skills in the classroom
Stewart Kieliszewski – Mechatronics Teacher at Ubly Jr./Sr. High School – the $600 grant will purchase a 3D Scanner for the mechatronics classroom to teach students how 3D scanning can be applied in real life, manufacturing situations
An additional $600 Back to School grant, supported by the Price Family Donor Advised Fund, is awarded to Stephanie Anderson, English Teacher at Bad Axe Public Schools, who will use $600 to continue to expand her classroom library to support the independent reading program she has established with her students.
Congratulations to our grant recipients and our sincere thanks to all Huron County educators for teaching our next generation! Pictures will be coming to the website as soon as the new materials are implemented into the three grant receiving classrooms.
