ECHS Educator Wins $100 Visa GIft Card
Carteret-Craven Electric Coo-op awarded a $100 VISA gift card to East Carteret High School’s Kate Jayne, who was one of 467 educators across the state to submit their Bright Ideas grant applications by the ‘early bird’ deadline.
Bright Ideas grants fund innovative learning projects in K-12 classrooms. Ms. Jayne’s project proposal, “Seeds of Success,” asks for funding so her students can plant and tend garden plots and flower beds in the classroom courtyard.
It’s not too late to submit a grant proposal. The final deadline to apply is Sept. 18. This year, CCEC expects to award more than $23,000 to teachers in Carteret County and Havelock. For more information or to start your application, visit www.NCBrightIdeas.com.
