“Thanks to the mini-grants provided by the Education Foundation, my colleagues and I have been able to purchase materials such as Mathstart books, a digital camera, science lab equipment, and much more.”
– Kimberly Hurst, Fifth Grade Teacher, Clinton Elementary School
Funds raised by The Education Foundation will be distributed in several ways. The school systems need to upgrade computer technology, buy additional books and materials, provide equipment for science experiments and much more. Funds for these types of projects are very scarce, if available at all. Funds for such projects broaden students’ learning experiences and make them more consistent.

"The ACES standards have helped me become more responsible as a student and more involved in my community. I have not only grown as a community member, I have also grown as a person."

"My freshman year, the ACES program pushed me to become more active in school and in my community. In the years following, ACES requirements became an after thought; I simply did what I love and everything else fell into place.”
