Teachers Awarded Grants From LISD Foundation

It was a "prize patrol" of sorts for some much-deserving East Texas teachers. The Longview ISD Foundation visited several campuses Tuesday, surprising teachers with thousands of dollars in grant money. The money will be used for innovative classroom projects and programs.

Dawn Mohler, a Foster Middle School teacher, says, "they've helped us with robotic equipment, I mean, they have come through for me a lot of times with lots of grants and we couldn't do a lot of what we do without the Foundation, so we really do appreciate it."

The highest grant awarded to a teacher was nearly 2,000 dollars.
