GP Mini Grant Warren awarded Community Foundation Mini-Grant

Thomas County first grade teacher Bethany Warren of Garrison-Pilcher Elementary School was awarded the Community Foundation Public Education Mini-Grant of $500 this past December for spring 2022 projects. Warren’s students received a class set of “Boogie Boards” which is an alternative to the traditional whiteboard. Students can use the included stylus, a pen, or even a fingernail. There is no need to buy special markers. The boards erase instantly with the push of a button and can be disinfected with any available cleaning product. These boards will be used daily for years to come.

Ten teachers from the Thomas County School System received Community Education Mini-Grants including the following: Hanah Taylor, Hand-In-Hand; Bethany Warren, Garrison-Pilcher; Melissa Artz and Stephanie Wilson, Thomas County Middle School; Farren Burnette, Ashley Finch, and Caitlin Muse, Thomas County Central; Regina Beasley, Bishop Hall; Bill Wilhelm, Renaissance Center; and Gini Billingsley, Pathways.
