Congratulations to the Fall 2017 Recipients of the WP Rawl School to Garden Grant Awards!

September 21, 2017

September 21, 2017: Each Fall and Spring, the Lexington One Educational Foundation is fortunate to have Walter P. Rawl & Sons offer grants to our Lexington One schools. These grants range from $250 to sustain a current school garden to up to $500 to build a new school garden. The purpose of the School Garden Mini-Grants is to provide Lexington County School District One’s schools an opportunity to enhance students’ knowledge of diet and nutrition by providing financial assistance toward a school garden or other live plant projects. Types of projects often funded include vegetable gardens, butterfly gardens, vegetation for outdoor classrooms, and a greenhouse or indoor nursery. 

We extend a big congratulations to the following schools and project leaders that were chosen as the Fall 2017 Grant recipients: 

  • Deerfield Elementary School – Alyse Bullard 
  • Forts Pond Elementary – Helen Siceloff 
  • Meadow Glen Elementary – Jeanne McKinney 
  • Pleasant Hill Elementary – Anya Degtyareva 
  • Pleasant Hill Middle – Anne Peterson & Mary Ashley Rodriguez 
  • Red Bank Elementary – Kristin Dycus 
  • River Bluff High School –Amy Price 

The winners were recognized at the September 19th Board of Trustees meeting for this honor along with their school principals. 

Many thanks to WP Rawl & Sons for continuing to support Lexington One students and schools through their most generous donations of such wonderful grant opportunities!
