Grants for G-P Teachers
The G-P Education Foundation visited all six (6) Gregory-Portland ISD schools on Friday, November 15, 2019, to surprise 20 G-P teachers with $13,753.65 in grant awards -- the FIRST-EVER (inaugural) grants awarded by the foundation! Programs will impact at least 1,705 G-P students this school year alone, and more in the years to come.
THANK YOU, DONORS! - Grants were made available thanks to our individual and private donors, as well as proceeds from the 2019 Teacher of the Year Banquet last May ... and a $5,000 gift from the Kiwanis Club of Portland (provided by the West Family / Dairy Queens of South Texas).
Kiwanis Club of Portland donates $5,000 to G-P Education Foundation
“The number one priority of the Kiwanis Club is to support the children of our area,” said Brad Brown, a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones and President of the Kiwanis Club. Brown presented a $5,000 check on behalf of the club to Dr. Paul Clore, Gregory-Portland ISD Superintendent and Secretary of the G-P Education Foundation. “This donation was made possible thanks to Jimmy West and Dairy Queen of South Texas, and now it will help fund teacher grants to make a difference for children in classrooms across the district.” G-P teachers will be awarded grants this school year.
