• International Paper funds a grant that provides assistance to Craven County Schools

    November 08, 2017
    A first year partnership, International Paper funded a grant that provides assistance to Craven County Schools’ educators for hands-on activities in math and science. This grant program, administered by Partners In Education, allows our teachers the opportunity to purchase materials for activities in the classroom without having to spend money out of their own pocket. The winners are Kathy Leffler, Arthur W. Edwards Elementary; Caroline Parham, A.H. Bangert Elementary; Marianna Dunn, James W. Smith Elementary; and Sara Wilkinson, A.H. Bangert Elementary.

    Pictured are Catherine Alligood and Kathy Leffler accepting the checks on behalf of their schools from PIE board representatives, Ervin Patrick, Debra Hurst, Don Brinkley, and Darlene Brown.  If you would like to learn how your organization can make a difference through Craven County Schools’ local education foundation, PIE, contact Darlene Brown, Executive Director, at 514-6321.
