(Nov. 30, 2012) The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore honored Maryland Lower Shore schools and educators with $45,000 in grants through its 2012 Education Award Grants Program.
Education Awards are made annually in conjunction with National Education Week through a competitive process to public and private schools on the Lower Eastern Shore. Grants are made to those schools that have developed innovative programs to be particularly beneficial to their students and communities.
“This awards program is the Community Foundation’s principal vehicle for recognizing and rewarding those schools that are engaged in making a particularly creative contribution to the education of our children,” said Don Taylor, foundation board chairman. “These awards highlight truly remarkable things our dedicated teachers and school administrators are accomplishing.”
Snow Hill Middle School received a grant for its Project b-Calm program during ceremonies held at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore’s Nonprofit Support Center in Salisbury.
