Congratulations to the Fall 2018 Walter P. Rawl & Sons School Garden Mini-Grant Award Winners!
August 21, 2018: Each Fall and Spring, the Lexington One Educational Foundation is fortunate to have Walter P. Rawl & Sons offer school garden grants to our Lexington One schools. These grants range from $250 to sustain a current school garden and up to $500 to build a new school garden. The purpose of the School Garden Mini-Grants is to provide Lexington 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 2018 Grant recipients:
- Gilbert Primary – Debbie F. Oswald
- Forts Pond Elementary – J. Haley Cribb
- Meadow Glen Elementary – Jeanne K. McKinney
- Pelion Elementary – Heather A. Bradwell, Dana C. Boozer
- Pleasant Hill Middle – Anne M. Peterson
- River Bluff High – Amy P. Price
- White Knoll High – Sarah J. Fisher
The winners were recognized at the August 21, 2018, Board of Trustees meeting for this honor along with their school principals. Susan Clifton, Vice President for Finance and Accounting with W.P. Rawl & Sons, personally attended to present the awards.
Foundation chair Simeon Bryant stated, “Our sincere thanks to Mrs. Clifton, Charles Wingard, and the other leaders at Walter P. Rawl & Sons for continuing to support Lexington One students and schools through their most generous donations of such wonderful grant opportunities!”
