Union Power Grants Awarded to Teachers
Union Power Cooperative awarded two grants to teachers here at PRMS. Danielle Smith received a recycling grant for $484. Ms. Smith states, â€œI submitted a grant application for a recycling team I would like to start here at PRMS. I am hoping to use this team of â€˜Eco-Piratesâ€™ to help teach the school community about the importance of recycling and tips on how to conserve our natural resources.â€ Mr. Sherrin received a technology grant for $400. Mr. Sherrin states, â€œAfter receiving our tablet laptops this year I wanted to make the most of it, so I applied for the Union Power Cooperative Bright Ideas Grant. With the money I will be purchasing wireless projection equipment for my classroom.â€
Union Power Cooperative received over 100 applications and only awarded eighteen grants in five counties. What an accomplishment to receive two out of the eighteen!
