Jackson County Educators Foundation awards grants

Mark Skinner | TIMES

The Jackson County Education Foundation’s mission is to give, give, give to the students of Jackson County. Year after year they take on projects for the funding of grants for both individual teachers and classroom as well as school grants. Tuesday afternoon, those who had been awarded grants gathered at the Jackson County School Board district office for the presentation of the check from the Foundation. For every dollar raised by the Foundation, the State matches it dollar for dollar. This year’s total was $29,435.62, the largest thus far by the Foundation.
