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."

Scholarship Honoring a Fabulous Teacher–Karen Anderson

Kristy Robertson and Lana Hiskey

The Nebo Education Foundation will be honoring a fabulous teacher–Karen Anderson by offering a scholarship to graduating senior students.

Hundreds of children were met each day by the captivating smile of Mrs. Karen Anderson. One of Mrs. Anderson’s greatest loves was to teach first-grade children how to read. She loved to see the "light" come on when the symbols on the page became real words and opened an entirely new world to a young mind.
