A 2017 DCEF Teacher Mini-Grant was given by The Hugh Shepherd Family to Angie Wright, a teacher at Churchland Elementary.   Ms. Wright was awarded with a surprise presentation in her classroom.  Their winning grant was titled, “We Have STEM in the Bag”.

They received a $300.00 check, a certificate and a letter of congratulations from The Shepherd Family and the Davidson County Education Foundation.

The DCEF Mini-Grant Committee approved all the applications received, and The Shepherd Family made the final selections for their mini-grant.

Our sincere thanks to The Shepherd Family for their generous donation and continued support toward DCEF and the teachers of the Davidson County Public Schools.

Mini-Grant criteria require projects to be closely aligned with North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study. Applicants must submit innovative and educational project ideas with realistic goals which directly benefit students. All Mini-Grants are awarded in the amount of $300.00 each.

For the 2017-2018 school year, DCEF has awarded 6 Mini-Grants to deserving teachers from the Davidson County Public Schools System.

DCEF commends all teachers for their response to this year’s Teacher Mini-Grant program.
