The Reeds Spring School Foundation awarded 14 grants to staff members, totaling over $6,500. The grants range from $200-$800 and help fund student enrichment projects and unique classroom experiences.

Reeds Spring School District staff members applied for the grants and had to explain their proposed projects and the costs. The School Foundation raised the money through its Wolf Howl Scramble, a golf tournament held in September.

“Our staff members are so passionate about doing what’s best for kids,” said Foundation chairman Ben Fisher in a press release. “There’s no doubt that these projects will keep students engaged and lead to better outcomes.”

Some of the projects include creating a piano lab at the Elementary School, providing equipment to help special education students improve their motor skills, greenhouses and plant kits, and books to encourage more reading.

Here is the list of grant recipients:
Melissa Bittle, Alisha Cavinder, Melanie Clevenger, Tanya Coss, Brandi Culp, Christina Essary, Ashley Gossen, Lori Munhollon, Jennifer Noriega, Josie O’Hara, Julie Prince, Jeanne Sadler, Nichole Moschner, Kirstin Stanley, and Nick Wilson.

The School Foundation’s next big fundraiser is PACK NIGHT at Dolly Parton’s Stampede, which is scheduled for March 10, 2023.
