This fall, the Shallowater Education Foundation turned over $35,000 in education grants this year. The funds will be used for classroom instruction at various campus locations.
Awards ranging from $500 to $1,500 were given individual teachers or teams of teachers who submitted grant proposals. The successful grant applications were evaluated and approved by the Shallowater Education Foundation program committee.
This spring, the foundation hosted its first Golfing for Graduates golf tournament to raise funds to distribute in the form of scholarships to seniors gradating from Shallower High School. Over 25 teams of golfers and dozens of sponsors helped the foundation provide 11 scholarships.
Our children in Shallowater are the future, not just the next generation, but tomorrow counts as well. The things we do for our children tomorrow make a difference.
We can't afford to wait for someone else to take care of the needs of our children. We don't sit back and watch as time moves across the West Texas sky and hope of a better tomorrow, we are creating better tomorrows for our children today.
