Three FSD1 teachers each receive $2,500 grant from Farmers Insurance
Three Florence One teachers received $2,500 each from Farmers Insurance through the Thank a Teacher Program. Farmers Insurance invites teachers to submit proposals for the education program designed to better prepare students for the future. On its website, Farmers receives votes for the strongest proposals, which determine the grant recipients.
Teachers in Florence One who received $2500 grants last week were Victoria Phipps of Greenwood Elementary; Jillian Cappola of Sneed Middle; and Bill Ward of Carver Elementary.
Farmers Insurance Representative Christy Noriega flew out to present the checks to these teachers.
Phipps’ grant at Greenwood will be used for new technology and technology accessories.
Cappola’s grant at Sneed will assist in funding of the Positive Behavior Intervention System.
Ward’s grant at Carver will be used for STEM supplies in the Smart Lab to support engineering concepts.
