Henry schools get $14K in EMC grants

Snapping Shoals Electric Membership Corp. vice president Danny Stone presented the Henry County School System with $14,000 in donations last week.

Superintendent Rodney Bowler was presented with a $500 check for STEM initiatives and a $13,500 check for mini-grants to be used by ten different schools.

The EMC, as a nonprofit, refunds its capital credits or margins in various ways to its members, and unclaimed credits must by law be used for economic and community development projects such as this.

A total of 14 projects have been awarded Bright Ideas mini-grants this year, ranging from $250 to $1,500. Several of the grants will be used for technology and various personalized learning efforts.

Schools identified as recipients include Cotton Indian, Woodland, Rock Spring, Ola and Hickory Flat Charter elementary schools; Stockbridge and Austin Road middle schools; and Ola, Union Grove and Stockbridge high schools. Information: www.henry.k12.ga.us.
