The school board recognized Lori Robinson, the Foundation’s Co-chairperson. “The foundation is able to offer the grants to the district’s teachers because of the strong support we receive from the community,” explained Robinson.

Jeremy Brooks, Agriculture Education teacher at Strom Thurmond Career and Technology Center shared with the School Board details of his appreciation for the grant. “We are able to do things with our students we would not normally be able to do because of the Vision grant,” explained Brooks. “The Vision grant provided the last touches for a lab that will impact our entire school,” remarked Becca Hamilton, Merriwether Elementary School Gateway to Learning teacher.

The foundation receives its funding through donations from local businesses and individuals. “We are so thankful that our county supports our teachers and we are honored to be a part of the process,” said Wendi Byrd, FPSEC Co-chairman.

The Foundation’s support of the teachers’ grants ensures the Edgefield County School District is actively pursuing its purpose of engaging, empowering and enriching all Edgefield County graduates.
