First Presbyterian Christian Academy has received a $2,500 grant from CenturyLink to support No More Tassel Hassle, submitted by Marcia Graham.
The award was given through the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation’s Teachers and Technology grant program. The program, which has been offered since 2008, awards grants to schools in CenturyLink’s local service areas on behalf of teachers who have developed specific plans to implement technology in their classrooms.
“We were excited to see the innovation and creativity in this year’s grant applications,” said Randy Wood, CenturyLink vice president of operations for Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee. “It’s encouraging to see teachers’ enthusiasm for bringing new learning tools and techniques into their classrooms, and we are pleased to be able to help expose students to more educational technology in their daily school lives.”
Across the country, more than 1,000 grant applications were received. In Georgia, more than five teachers applied, with one winning school selected by a review committee comprised of community members and a CenturyLink representative.
