The Mansfield ISD Education Foundation’s prize patrol surprised deserving staff with grant money during their spring round of grant giveaways.
Twenty-five grants totaling over $65,000 were awarded for various innovative projects and activities that go beyond the normal classroom experience.
"Seeing the looks on the faces of teachers when they realize they got their grant is priceless," said Linda Bacsik, director of the MISD Education Foundation, when asked about her favorite part of giving away grants.
The non-profit organization has raised more than $3 million in grants since its inception in the fall of 1998. For more information on how you can help make a difference in MISD classrooms, visit the Education Foundation’s website.
