2020 Grant Recipients Announced for our Multicultural Fund
Stepping out of your comfort zone and immersing yourself in a new culture brings unique opportunities that can’t always be found in the classroom. And having a teacher bring these experiences to the classroom opens windows to life outside our borders. Realizing that international travel is not always in the budget for a teacher, benefactors with the Oldham County Community foundation, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Louisville started the Multicultural Fund for Teachers.
We are excited to announce that three Oldham County teachers have received the 2020 Multicultural Fund for Teachers grant. The grant, which awards $2500 to teachers for summer travel abroad, is in its fourth year. Initially set up to rotate between high schools, the award is now offered to one teacher at each level (high school, middle school, and elementary) annually.
This year’s recipients are Anna Clark (Camden Station Elementary), Jaclyn Green (East Oldham Middle School), and Tonya Sipes (Oldham County High School). While they will delay their trips until it is safe to participate, they look forward to visiting Costa Rica, Greece, and Uruguay and bringing their unique cultural experiences back to the classroom.
