GUYMON, Okla. — Fifty-one educators across 26 school districts started their school year with a little extra support for their classrooms after receiving the Educators Lead Tomorrow Grant from Seaboard Foods. The company awarded $42,260 in grants to local educators in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects in the classroom.
“At Seaboard Foods, we believe in fueling education and recognize the incredible influence of educators in shaping our society’s future,” said Davida Gomez, community enrichment specialist. “The Educators Lead Tomorrow Grant is our way of showing our appreciation and support for the outstanding work done by teachers who inspire and prepare our students to build skills and lead tomorrow’s world.”
The first-year Educators Lead Tomorrow Grant commends exceptional teachers and educators who continually go above and beyond to inspire and educate the next generation.
The selection process for the Educators Lead Tomorrow Grant prioritized STEM projects. Grant recipients received funding ranging from $200 to $1,000 to invest in classroom resources, educational projects, and professional development opportunities, enabling them to continue their exceptional contributions to the field of education. Educators could apply for up to a $1,000 grant.
