Grants given by the Nebo Education Foundation--January 2011

January 2011

Congratulations to all our wonderful teachers that inspire the minds of children!

Foundation President Blaine Bird said, "I feel very fortunate to be able to see the full cycle of how the Nebo Education Foundation is involved in helping the kids of Nebo School District. After we receive funds from the community, we review grant proposals from dedicated teachers who have specific classroom needs, then we are able to award a grant to that teacher who uses those resources to enrich the educational experience for our kids.  It is a win-win-win program."
