On Sept. 22nd the 20th Annual Scramble for Students was held at The Resort at the Mountain, benefiting the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation. The GBEF touches every school in the Gresham-Barlow School District through its Innovation Grant program. These grants enable teachers to provide creative classroom projects for which tax dollars are not available. This year 41 iPads were introduced into classrooms – elementary to high school – to encourage reading, support math and enhance science curriculum. Grants to improve reading comprehension and link classroom instruction to real world manufacturing were funded through the generous support of our donors. This year $20,000 worth of grants were funded making a positive impact in our classrooms.
Thank you to the golfers, volunteers, donors and sponsors.
