“Montgomery Education Foundation Awards Chapter Initiative Grants”
Montgomery AFCEA Chapter Education Foundation took great pride in the recent awards of Chapter Initiative Grants to local Macon County and Montgomery Public Schools (MPS) districts. Macon County received $10,000 to fund future growth of information technology in the classroom via the purchase of Lego Robots for their representative schools. The addition of the robots will significantly enhance Pre-Robotics Engineering and Programming studies within county schools by expanding the scope of the program from grades 9-12 to grades 6-12. Montgomery Public Schools received over $20,000 to finance a new set of state-of-the-art iPads to bring the newest, interactive technology to students’ fingertips. STEM instructors and local Montgomery superintendants accepted the awards on behalf of Macon County and Montgomery Public Schools districts. Montgomery’s Education Foundation is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue supporting the hard work of local schools in the River Region and congratulates both Chapter Initiative grant recipients on their well-deserved awards.
