Samson Elementary receives grant for outreach programs

News

Governor Ivey has recognized Samson Elementary as one of 200 Alabama bicentennial schools from a competitive pool of nearly 400 schools.

The school will receive a $2,000 grant for a proposal that engages in outreach and improvement projects involving the community.

“We received $2,000 that we’re able to use for improvement projects and connections with the community,” Principal Rena Averett said. “That’s the purpose; it’s for us to look at students understanding that they are a part of the community and that they, even as young citizens, can shape their community.”

At the presentation in Montgomery, Governor Ivey said she was so proud to see such a strong showing of schools across the state participating in the program.
