Joanne B. Swafford and Phyllis Brown, two retired teachers and members of the Alpha Theta Chapter of Alpha Delta Kapa, presented a contribution from the organization to Lynn Voelz, executive director of the Bradley/Cleveland Public Education Foundation.

Alpha Delta Kappa, an international sorority for women educators, is an altruistic organization which seeks to assist with professional development, charitable scholarships and grants.

Alpha Theta’s contribution will support two academic grants for classrooms in a Cleveland school and a Bradley County school.

Mini grants allow teachers to think outside the box and do things never imagined with current budget constraints.

But, most of all, the grants allow students’ engagements in ways regular instruction could not reach.

All grants support academics. In 2012, BCPEG awarded 53 mini grants. They received 108 grant proposals.

The foundation wold like to say, “Yes,” to every grant proposal they receive, President Swafford said.

“Even small donations can make a difference in the number of grants funded each year.”
