Educators Surprised With $36,000 In Grants

Prairie Mountain teacher Jenifer Gerlach celebrates after being surprised with a Bethel Education Foundation grant.

Cheers and tears greeted Bethel Education Foundation representatives as they handed out more than $36,000 in grants to dozens of Bethel educators.

The BEF will be funding a variety of exciting and innovative projects to benefit Bethel students at all grade levels, everything from technology to trips and rockets to robots.

The educators didn’t know that the BEF was coming, but they heard the small group of 6th grade Shasta band students marching down the hall leading the grant parade into their classrooms.

The BEF has been raising funds to support teachers’ special projects for seven years.
