Cobb EMC awards 53 mini-grants to local teachers

Partners in Education

Cobb EMC recently awarded 53 mini-grants to elementary, middle and high school teachers across the electric utility’s service area. These mini-grants, which total more than $25,000, will fund a variety of experiential and active learning projects including career prep, community gardens, STEM, art and music expansions.

“We’re proud to support these incredible teachers and the creativity they bring to their classrooms,” said Mark Justice, director of education and community relations at Cobb EMC.

The 53 recipients applied for mini-grants by outlining their specific projects and how each would benefit students. Mini-grants are one of the many ways Cobb EMC gives back to local communities. Others include career days, student mentoring and scholarships.
