The CCEF is introducing a new grant program for CCPS teachers! CCPS teachers/staff who are experiencing financial hardship while setting up their classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year due to new expectations of social distancing/ virtual learning. Teachers/staff may apply as a grade level or an individual for any amount they need and the CCEF Board will review all applications do their best to make decisions quickly.
During these crazy and uncertain times, the Clarke County Education Foundation is doing its best to help our community. Our Board has decided one way to help is by raising money to purchase school supplies for students whose families are struggling.
This summer, our goal is to purchase one set of school supplies for each student who receives free and reduced meals in CCPS. One student’s supplies cost approximately $25 and there are about 400 students who receive free and reduced meals in CCPS. Therefore, our goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase supplies for all students who need them!
CCEF Honors Johnny Milleson's Commitment to Clarke County
The Clarke County Education Foundation is thrilled to announce the formation of a newly endowed scholarship fund in honor of Mr. John “Johnny” R. Milleson. Mr. Milleson will retire as the President and CEO of the Bank of Clarke County on July 5, 2019. These funds will be used each year to award a scholarship to a graduating Clarke County High School senior who is a first-generation college student. The fund was opened by members of the Board of Directors of the Bank of Clarke County with initial pledges totaling over $50,000.
Providing Free Internet Access
On behalf of the family and friends of Dr. Richard M. Lewis, Kajeets, a broadband internet device, have been made available to those students of CCPS who are not able to access internet in their homes! This technology is the result of generous memorial contributions made to honor the late Dr. Lewis, who passed away in July 2016. Dr. Lewis was the President of the Clarke County Education Foundation at the time of his passing, and he was a tireless advocate for access to educational opportunities.
