John Glenn Education Foundation Gala Set for Feb. 17

A fundraising event will be held to raise funds to help teachers apply their out-of-the-box ideas to enhance the learning experience for students.

A fundraising gala is set for Feb. 17 at 6 p.m. at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth where a silent auction will occur after a sit-down dinner. All proceeds will benefit the John Glenn Education Foundation. That money will be awarded in the form of grants to help fund enhanced training, teaching techniques or new styles of learning. The Teacher Grants Committee reviews all grant applications and the grants will be awarded as funds allow. The idea is to bridge the gap between need and funding.

Another round of grants will be awarded yet this semester. For more information about the gala, call the John Glenn Administration Office at (574) 586-3129.
