SRFCU Awards $1,000 Grants

SRFCU awards $1,000 grants to local teachers



Singing River Federal Credit Union has awarded three local teachers $1,000 grants – because they’re rockstars with amazing ideas for the 2014-15 school year.

“These recipients are more than dedicated, passionate teachers,” says SRFCU President/CEO Jimmy Smith. “They’re also spearheading innovative projects that will inspire students and parents alike, with no additional dollars in their budgets.”

Third-grade teacher Kelly Walters could hardly believe it when she learned she was a recipient. The Martin Bluff Elementary School teacher will be investing in technology that will allow her students to write and publish interactive, digital textbooks.

“Many of the jobs my students will face upon graduation haven’t even been invented yet,” says Walters. “Integrating this technology into learning is a powerful way to help my students begin dreaming about their future goals.”

Myeshea Holmes, a chemistry and physical science teacher at Moss Point High School, has plans to get her students’ hands dirty. In a joint project with the school’s carpentry department, students will restore a neglected greenhouse on the campus, then establish a new gardening program.

“Students will grow local plants and vegetables, and learn how plants help remove harmful gasses from the atmosphere,” says Holmes. “In future years, we’ll open a produce market run by our business students and sell fresh vegetables to the public.”

Mississippi’s history and natural resources will be the focus in Sharon Thompson’s classroom at Central Elementary School. The “Rockin’ Round Mississippi” curriculum is a dream come true for the Special Education Inclusion teacher, and will allow students to celebrate Mississippi natives like Oprah Winfrey, Brett Favre and Elvis Presley.

“Every student understands and remembers in his own way, and this material allows for learning across multiple intelligences,” says Thompson. “It also encourages parental involvement and parents are essential for student success.”

Singing River Federal’s Teachers Rock grant program was open to all full-time teachers at accredited K-12 schools in Jackson, George or Greene counties in Mississippi, or Mobile or Baldwin counties in Alabama.
