Teachers from nine different public schools across Gallatin have received a combined $16,101 from the Gallatin Chamber Foundation to help fund various educational projects and initiatives for students.
The 21 grant recipients for the 2021-22 school year were revealed during surprise visits to their classrooms last month. Funding was raised primarily through the annual Shamrock Run in March along with a showing of the movie “Hocus Pocus” at the Palace Theatre last year.
“These grants help fund innovate projects in classrooms that wouldn’t be funded through other funding sources,” Gallatin Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Kim Baker said. “Many of them impact the whole school and quite often they impact the community as well.”
