Congratulations to the following district employees who have received grants from PPG Industries Fiber Glass Products, Inc., in Chester, SC:

 The second grant, also received in December, was used to purchase guitar picks, a guitar stand, and 12 guitars to support Chris Morgan's (music teacher) guitar unit. (See above photos.)
Sandra Thompson, Grade 4 Teacher at Ebinport Elementary
Sandra, with the assistance of parent Kelly Scott, submitted the grant application to PPG to request funds to assist in covering the cost of eight Junior Achievement kits for classes to be taught at Ebinport. A grant for $1,000 was awarded on January 14.
Samantha Goodman, Multi-Categorical Exceptional Education Teacher at Saluda Trail Middle
