Teacher grants and appreciation dinner
Tonight, the Hancock Chamber of Education Committee will award close to $5,000 in classroom grants during the 11th annual Teacher Appreciation Dinner.
The event recognizes over 200 educators with door prizes donated by area businesses. Organizers say the purpose is to ‘celebrate and honor our teacher’s hearts, brains, and courage.’
The programs the committee supports are critical to educational outcomes to insure that teachers and students have the resources, support, and the encouragement they need to reach their highest potential.
